Personal income tax

Income tax return by individuals for the previous year (2023)

In general

Income Tax Act No. 586/1992 Coll. regulates terms of taxation in the Czech Republic

Tax period in the Czech Republic is a calendar year.

The taxable income of natural persons is the sum of net income in the categories stipulated according to the following sections of the Income Tax Act:

  • § 6) Employment Income – salaries, wages, bonuses, which usually apply at UCT Prague to employed students, researchers and academics
  • §7) Income from independent activities - self- employment, business activities, professional services
  • §8) Capital income - interests and dividends
  • §9) Rental Income - income from lease of immovable property
  • §10) Other incomes - income from the sale of securities, sale of property, other incomes

 The tax rate 15% is applied to an annual income up to CZK 1 935 552 (monthly income up to CZK 161 296) for the income exceeding this amount a rate 23% is applied.

An Individual is entitled for a tax reliefs and allowances, provided he/she is treated a Czech tax resident. However, a tax resident has a tax liability that applies both to income derived from sources in the Czech Republic and to income derived from sources abroad. He/she can avoid double taxation under the terms of a double taxation treaty, if the treaty between the Czech Republic and respective country is concluded.

Tax Residence (Domicile)

Individuals who have their permanent residence or habitual abode in the Czech Republic are treated as Czech tax residents.

All other individuals are treated as Czech tax non-residents. Should an individual be also regarded as a tax resident in another country based on the other country’s domestic law, the double tax treaty between the Czech Republic and particular country determines his/her final tax residency status based on gradually applied criteria stipulated in the Article No. 4 of the respective double tax treaty.

The Czech tax non-resident working at a territory of the Czech Republic is liable only to income tax from income derived from the Czech´s  sources only however he/she is liable to tax from his/her worldwide income in the country where is treated as a tax resident.
