Taxation of EU pensions


Information on taxation of pensions received from other EU countries

18.10.2021

If you receive an old-age pension or a disability pension from Poland but reside in another EU country, your income may be taxed:

  • only in Poland,
  • only in the country where you reside,
  • both in Poland and in the country where you reside.
Please note: In order to find out where you should pay the tax on income from your old-age pension or disability pension, read the double taxation agreement concluded between Poland and the country where you reside.

This will allow you to avoid double taxation (in two different countries).

If your old-age pension or disability pension is subject to taxation in Poland, the pension you receive will be reduced by the income tax withheld.
