What Is International Taxation?
International taxation deals with situations in which a person or a business is subject to tax laws in a country other than their own. If you spend a large amount of time in a foreign country, or your business has major business dealings in another country, you may be subject to international taxation.
Types of International Taxation
There are two main types of international taxation systems:
- In a Territorial system, income is only taxed if it comes from a source inside the country.
- In a Residential system, individuals in the country are taxed on all of their income, whether it comes from domestic or foreign sources. In most countries, nonresidents are only taxed on local income, however, in the United States, even nonresident citizens are taxed on income from both local and international sources.
