Luxembourg Income Tax

Individual income tax is levied on the worldwide income of individuals residing in Luxembourg, as well as on Luxembourg-source income of non-residents.

Luxembourg income tax liability is based on the individual’s personal situation (e.g. family status). For this purpose, individuals are granted a tax class. Three tax classes have been defined – Class 1 for single persons, Class 2 for married persons as well as civil partners (under certain conditions) and Class 1a for single persons with children as well as single taxpayers aged at least 65 on 1 January of the tax year.

Married non-resident taxpayers who are not separated are granted tax class 2, if they are taxable in Luxembourg on more than 50% of the professional income of their household. In such a case where both spouses derive professional income taxable in Luxembourg, the application of tax class 2 leads to a combined assessment. However, unseparated married non-resident taxpayers who do not comply with the above 50% condition are granted the tax class 1 or 1a.

Non-resident civil partners may a benefit from tax class 2 under certain conditions as well.

Tax is calculated in accordance with a progressive table, ranging from 8% on taxable income in excess of 11,265 euros (EUR) to 40% on income in excess of EUR 100,000 for 2016 and a solidarity tax of 7% of taxes (9% for taxpayers earning more than EUR 150,000 in tax class 1 and 1a or more than EUR 300,000 in tax class 2) must be paid as well.
