What's left of your gross income in Bulgaria after deduction of taxes and social security contributions?
In Bulgaria, you pay income tax at an annual flat rate of 10% (on your taxable income, less compulsory contributions and any tax relief you qualify for).
You may be entitled to a tax-free allowance which varies depending on your personal circumstances.
Tax on your income from employment is assessed in advance by your employer during the year, both monthly and yearly.
If you have only 1 employer and receive only employment income, you do not have to file an annual tax return.
If you disagree with your tax assessment, you can appeal to the tax office. Read your tax assessment letter carefully to find out exactly which department you should send your appeal to and which procedures you need to follow.
