Double Tax Treatment

Double tax treatment is the levying of tax by two or more jurisdictions on the same source of earned income, assets or any financial transaction. Double tax treatment can occur both on corporate level and personal or in international trade.

Double taxation treaty is a reciprocal arrangement between two or more countries that reduces the amount of tax that a foreign worker or company must pay. Under double taxation treaty, states which country has the taxing rights and which income or gains from tax may exempt or allow to offset the tax paid in one country against the tax due from other country.
