    In my opinion, the correct choice would depend on the context.

    Question 2
    (a) Service tax on professional fee
    (b) Service tax for professional fee
    (c) Service tax on/for professional fee

    A tax is usually assessed ON something. Therefore, in my opinion, I would say "a".
    Hope this helps.
