A standard deduction exists to help lower your taxable income. It is calculated as a percentage up to a maximum limit. Many other deductions also exist if you choose to forgo the standard deduction and go with itemized deductions. For example, some itemized deductions may include medical expenses, social security contributions, the presence of dependents, and certain tuition expenses, among others.
Non-residents are not eligible for any deductions and are subject to a flat income tax rate of 25%.
Social Security in Brazil
Contributions to social security are shared between both employers and employees. The rates vary based on a progressive scale similar to income tax. For 2022, employee contributions to social security range from 7.5% to 14%.
As stated above, employee contributions to social security are deductible, but only if you choose to proceed with itemized deductions.
Resident status and income tax in Brazil
Individuals who are residents for tax purposes are subject to income tax on worldwide income while non-residents are only subject to tax on Brazilian-sourced income. If the income comes from someone located in Brazil, then it is considered to be Brazilian-sourced income.
There is a long list of criteria that qualify someone as a resident. The most simple criteria is simply being either a Brazilian citizen or a naturalized foreign national living in Brazil. Some other criteria that also qualify one as a resident include Brazilian residents that have moved abroad but have not filed any exit process (for a period of twelve months after departure), foreign nationals with an employment contract with a Brazilian company, and foreign nationals with temporary visas but without an employment contract that stay in Brazil for an aggregate of at least 183 days within any twelve month period, among many others.
Everyone else that do not fall into any of resident status descriptions and criteria are then considered to be non-residents for tax purposes.
