With the new year come old tax responsibilities. Graphic: @BrnoDaily

Usually, your employer does your tax return for you, or you can do it by yourself or with the help of a tax advisor. But what do you do if your home country wants to tax you as well?

To avoid double taxation you can apply for a tax domicile at your local tax office. This document proves that you are a tax resident in the Czech Republic and that the Czech Republic is where you should be paying your taxes.

Brno Expat Centre (BEC) has published a new infosheet with a step-by-step guide to obtaining a tax domicile.

First, determine your tax residency by answering the sequence of questions presented in the infosheet. If you are indeed a Czech tax resident, you can then follow the process of applying for a tax domicile: learn where to go (there are several Financial Offices which serve different districts of Brno), which type of domicile you need, and what documents you are required to present.
