Resident status and income tax in Puerto Rico
Residents of Puerto Rico are taxed on their worldwide income while non-residents are only taxed in Puerto Rico on their Puerto Rico-sourced income.

Additionally, such personal services must have been provided to an employer who is not engaged in trade or business in Puerto Rico.
Individuals are considered residents for tax purposes if they are domiciled in Puerto Rico or they have been present in Puerto Rico for a period of at least 183 days during the calendar year.
Details about United States Federal Income Tax
Since Puerto Rico is part of the United States, all taxpayers in Puerto Rico are also subject to United States federal income tax, with a few exceptions.

Our Puerto Rico tax calculator calculates US federal income tax according to the optional criteria selected while also assuming that you are under 65 years of age. If this does not describe you, more options are available within our United States paycheck calculator. Simply select any state and enter your salary along with your desired options to see your estimated federal income tax (the displayed state taxes can then be ignored).
Just like with the Puerto Rico personal exemption, non-resident foreign nationals, are also not eligible for the federal standard deduction.
