Income tax in Brazil

If you earn income in Brazil, you'll have to pay a graduated tax to the Receita Federal, Brazil's federal taxing authority. Capital gains, on the sale of property in Brazil, are also subject to tax. Even if you pay tax in Brazil, you may also still have a tax liability and need to file a return in your previous country of residence. Taxation can quickly become complicated, especially when multiple taxing authorities are involved, so if you are earning income in Brazil, you are strongly encouraged to consult an expert versed in international taxation.
