Notes


1 The property is jointly owned by husband and wife, but then taxed separately (50% upon each partner).

2 Exchange rate used: 1.00 EUR = 1.00 EUR

3 A standard deduction of 10% of gross income is allotted for income-generating expenses. Instead of using the standard deduction option, taxpayers can opt to itemize their income-generating expenses but supporting documents must be presented.

4 Nonresident foreigners' rental income is taxed at a flat rate of 25%.
