The United States has tax treaties with a number of countries. Under these contracts, residents (not necessarily citizens) of foreign countries are taxed at a reduced rate or are exempt from U.S. tax on certain items of income they receive from sources located in the United States. These reduced rates and exemptions vary by country and income. Under the same conventions, U.S. residents or citizens are taxed at a reduced rate or are exempt from foreign taxes on certain items of income they receive from foreign sources. Most income tax treaties include a so-called “savings clause” that prevents a U.S. citizen or resident from using the provisions of a tax treaty to avoid taxing income withheld in the United States. If the contract does not cover a certain type of income, or if there is no agreement between your country and the United States, you must pay income taxes in the same way and at the same rates as indicated in the instructions for the corresponding U.S. tax return. Many individual states in the United States tax revenue received in their states. Therefore, you should contact the tax authorities of the state from which you receive income to find out if your income is subject to state tax. Some U.S.
states do not comply with tax treaty provisions. This page contains links to tax treaties between the United States and certain countries. More information on tax treaties is also available on the Department of Finance`s Tax Treaty Documents page.

The Agreement between the Australian Office of Trade and Industry and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Board on the Prevention of Double Taxation and the Prevention of Fiscal Evasion with Respect to Taxes on Income is a treaty-status document issued as Schedule 1 to the International Tax Agreements Act 1953.
4 The tax administrations of some Australian entrepreneurs have agreed to prepare synthesized texts to help the public better understand the impact of MLI. The Australian Tax Office is responsible for the creation of synthetic texts on behalf of Australia. The sole purpose of a synthesized text of the MLI and a bilateral tax treaty is to facilitate understanding of the application of the MLI to the respective bilateral tax treaty. A consolidated text is not a source of law. The binding legal texts of the bilateral tax treaty and the MLI prevail and remain the applicable legal texts. 3 This is the later of the two dates of entry into force of the multilateral instrument for each of the two Contracting Parties. After its entry into force, the multilateral instrument generally enters into force for each contracting party as follows: Here is a list of countries with which Australia currently has a tax treaty: The Double Fiscal Evasion Agreement is an agreement signed by two countries. The agreement is signed to make a country an attractive destination and to allow NRIs to exempt themselves from multiple tax payments.
DTAA does not mean that the NRI can completely avoid taxes, but it does mean that the NRI can avoid higher taxes in both countries. DTAA allows an NRI to reduce its tax impact on income earned in India. DTAA also reduces cases of tax evasion. 2.
