Tax rates

If your old-age pension or disability pension is subject to taxation in Poland, the tax due is calculated according to a tax scale. This means that the amount of tax depends on the amount of your benefit.

Please note: Your old-age pension or disability pension may not be taxed according to the tax scale, but at a rate set out in the double taxation agreement concluded between Poland and your country of residence.
