Who pays the income taxes

All individuals who receive any income – be it salary, pension, royalties, income from renting an apartment, etc. – pay the income tax.

In Luxembourg the income tax is progressive, i.e. the higher the income, the higher the rate.

To determine the levy rate, first, find the total annual income after deducting all social contributions of around 12%:

  • Below 11,265 euros – 0% income tax.
  • From 200,004 euros per year and more – 42% income tax.
  • From 11,265 and up to 200,004 euros – 8% to 42% income tax on a progressive scale.

How to determine your tax residency

The first thing to remember is that the amounts of payments are different for residents and non-residents. The status of tax resident is not automatically assigned when receiving a residence permit.

In Luxembourg, individuals are considered tax residents if they stay in the country for more than 6 months per year and have a domicile.

  • Residents pay taxes in Luxembourg from any source of income anywhere in the world, no matter where that source is located.
  • Non-residents only pay taxes on the income earned in Luxembourg.

How to determine your class

Being in one taxpayer class or another directly affects how much money you will pay to the state.

There are three categories of taxpayers in Luxembourg:

  • 1 class β€” a single person, that is, any person who is not married.
  • 1a classΒ  β€” the intermediate category that includes single parents and people over the age of 65.
  • 2 class β€” the reduced category, that is, spouses or couples with a registered partnership. This class remains in effect for 3 years after a divorce or the death of a spouse.

Solidarity tax

Another levy under an odd name is an obligatory supplement to income tax. It ranges from 7% to 9% of the tax paid amount:

  • 9% for individuals earning more than 150,000 euros in 1 and 1a classes or more than 300,000 euros in 2 tax class;
  • 7% for everyone else.

The maximum combined income tax rate, which includes all contribution fees and the solidarity tax, may not exceed the threshold of 45.78%

πŸ€” Can you not pay the solidarity tax if your income rate is 0%?
