Tax is calculated based on your income bracket.

So the higher your income the more taxes you pay. However certain expenses can be deducted from your taxable income regardless of whether you are a resident or cross-frontier worker.

Deductible expenses include the costs of childcare, car mileage, car insurance, housing etc. which reduce your tax liability and increases your income.

There are twon main types of expenses

  1. Everyday expenses: related to the costs of childcare, car insurance and housing etc. This category includes all expenses related to daily life that are not incurred for the purpose of tax deductions.
  2. Voluntary savings: this second type of savings allows you to subscribe to a savings plan and deduct it from your tax liability. Discover all the expenses you can deduct from savings plans and find out all about tax optimisation.

For cross-frontier workers

Contrary to popular belief, not all cross-frontier workers fall under the same taxation regime.

Deductible expenses for single people are practically the same for all cross-frontier workers.

Are you in a relationship? The total tax liability of your partner depends on their nationality.

Why?

Quite simply because countries such as Belgium, France and Germany have tax agreements with Luxembourg.

These agreements are different in each country. For example a Belgian cross-frontier worker who lives with a partner who works in Belgium has to pay more tax on their earnings than a French cross-frontier worker who lives with a partner who works in France.

For health and/or accident insurance these limits increase by €1500 if they provide for the payment of a daily allowance in the event of incapacity for work.

All lump-sums paid by life, death or accident insurance are tax exempt!

Products expressed in units of account (including mutual funds) have the same tax deduction rules as 'classic' policies.

These products can be deducted if they meet two conditions:

  1. Death benefit of at least 60% of the total premiums (with a minimum of 5 annual premiums)
  2. or 130% of the premiums paid up to death
