How to declare income tax?

Before knowing what amount should be paid, we need to talk about three points that need to be taken into account. They are: calculation basis, rate and portion to be deducted.

Calculation basis: These are the taxable income of the taxpayer, that is, amounts received such as wages, rent, pension, remuneration for work, investments, etc.

Rate: This is the percentage charged on your earnings. The income tax rate is progressive: the more you earn, the higher the rate.

Portion to be deducted: Amount subtracted from your income for calculating the tax to be proportional to your earning range. Now, we need to understand which monthly income range you fit into!

What are the Income Tax rates?

The table for the 2023 Income Tax declaration has not changed. The rates for individuals vary according to the taxpayer’s income. In 2023, the rates remain as follows:
