Is there anyone out there, preferably an American citizen retired in Brazil whose income comes from U.S. Social Security, U.S. pension, etc. (a retired person not working and with no Brazilian income) who can clarify the situation?
1. How much Brazilian income taxes must they pay? (I know they are required to pay full U.S. income taxes).
2. Can they take a deduction on their Brazilian taxes based on what they paid in the U.S.? For example, if they had to pay U.S. taxes of $15,000, are they allowed to deduct the $15,000 from what they would owe in Brazil?
