What's your situation?

Which income will be taxed in Czech Republic?

  • Have you been living in the Czech Republic for a minimum of 6 months in the (current) tax year? You are usually considered as resident for tax purposes and have to pay tax on your worldwide income there.

  • Have you lived in the Czech Republic but for less than 6 months in the (current) tax year? You are usually not considered as resident for tax purposes and pay tax only on income earned in the Czech Republic.

  • Income from other EU countries? Check you never pay tax twice on the same income.

How much will you pay?

What's left of your gross income in the Czech Republic after deduction of taxes and social-security contributions?

Income tax rates for 2013

15% for individuals.

You may be entitled to a tax-free allowance and deductions for certain types of expenditure.

When and how do you pay?

You must make estimated tax payments in advance (calculated on the basis of the previous year's tax return). Any adjustments needed to correct over- or underpayment will be made once you file your annual tax return.

If you have started a new business, you must calculate the amount of the advance payments yourself.

How to appeal / complain

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.
