How International Tax Treaties Work

First we’ll need to determine your legal position and determine what regulations you fall under. Treaties not only simplify tax structures but also save expacts from double taxation between country of origin and country of residence. In most cases individuals are taxed on their worldwide income and are eligible for Foreign Tax Credits to cover their taxable foreign income. In countries following residency-based taxation citizenship and residency status requires further examination of national laws outside of tax treaties.

Working with the Right CPA

The main components of current International tax law includes principles of taxation, double taxation laws, residency assessment, treaty interpretation, tax avoidance laws and transfer pricing. With increasing globalization, tax laws are only bound to get more complicated.

As a taxpayer, the best way to protect yourself is to stay updated and consult with a tax professional who understands international tax laws. Remember, at Akif CPA we are here to help you!
