Tax Treaty

(redirected from Bilateral Tax Agreement)

Tax Treaty

A treaty between two countries governing double taxation and other matters when a company or individual owes taxes to both countries. Tax treaties are written because double taxation with no exceptions could result in a decrease in trade between the two countries. Most countries (except tax havens) have entered into tax treaties with their trading partners and others. A tax treaty is also called a bilateral tax agreement.
