There are no standard deductions available in Mexico. That being said, limited deductions still exist for things like certain contributions to retirement accounts, certain educational expenses, home mortgage interest payments, certain medical expenses, most business expenses, and contributions to charities, among others. All of these are beyond the scope of our calculator and are not included.

Social Security in Mexico

Social security in Mexico consists of sickness, maternity, disability, and life insurance. Sickness and maternity insurance are grouped together while the same also goes for disability and life insurance. The insurance premiums for both consist of a small flat rate while those earning over a certain multiple of the UMA, which stands for Unidad de Medida y Actualización and translates to Unit of Measurement and Update, have to contribute a little extra to the sickness and maternity insurance. Both of these social security contributions are limited in that there is a maximum cap for the income that is considered. This cap is also another multiple of the UMA.

Resident status and income tax in Mexico

Regardless of nationality, individuals considered to be resident taxpayers are subject to income tax based on their worldwide income. On the other hand, non-residents are subject to income tax based on only their Mexican-sourced income.

An individual is considered to be a resident for tax purposes if they have a home in Mexico or their center of vital interest is located within Mexico. The latter is defined by taking into consideration the primary location of one's professional activities or whether or not more than half of one's income is derived from Mexican sources within a calendar year.

Residents moving away should take note that tax residency is not automatically terminated. Instead, those seeking to become non-residents for tax purposes must file paperwork with the govermnent to officially terminate tax residency, preferably before moving away. In addition, Mexico has policies that place certain limitations on those moving to places considered by the government to be tax havens.
