Notes

1 The property is jointly owned by husband and wife. (Separate taxation is allowed exclusively for the wife´s employment income.)

2 Exchange rate used: 1.00 US$ = 35.00 THB

3 Standard deduction of expenses is around 30% of the gross income. The option to claim actual expenses incurred in deriving rental income is allowed as long as the expenses are supported by documentary evidence.

4 Charity allowance is computed as 10% of the income after deduction of expenses and allowances (allowances are generally available just for residents). The charity allowance is available to all taxpayers.

5 Income is taxed at progressive rates.

6 A nonresident´s gross rental income is subject to 15% withholding tax, withheld by the tenant. The tax withheld is credited to the nonresident´s income tax liability.

Personal income tax returns must be filed on or before 21 March in respect of taxable income received during the preceding calendar year.
