What Is a Tax Treaty?

An International Law FAQ with Mary E. Vandenack.

A tax treaty is a special agreement between countries about the way citizens from different countries are going to be treated when they live or work in different countries. For example, the United States might have a tax treaty with Russia and that might specify what happens if a U.S. company has an employee in Russia or simply a U.S. resident goes over and lives in Russia. The treaty will specify who is going to be subject to tax, how much and how do credits work between the two countries.
