Income Tax in Tanzania in 2020

Taxes, including personal income tax, expenses and limitations are reviewed by the Government in Tanzania periodically and typically updated each year. Not that not all tax rates and thresholds in Tanzania change annually, alterations to tax policy to support strategic economic growth in Tanzania mean that the certain areas may be focused on to provide specific tax relief in Tanzania or support growth in certain areas (overseas invstment in Tanzania for example may mean reduced non-resident income tax rates in Tanzania for a period).

When tax policy in Tanzania changes, the resultant tax tables also change. Tax tables in Tanzania are simply a list of the relevent tax rates, fixed amounts and / or threholds used in the computation of tax in Tanzania, the Tanzania tax tables also include specific notes and guidance on the validity of scenarios (for example, qualifying criterea for specific tax relief / allowances) and notes of the calculation of phaseout of specific tax elements within each taxation group (dividends and corporation tax thresholds in Tanzania for example).

Tanzania Tax Tables may also be referred to as Tanzania Tax Slabs, Tanzania personal allowances and tax thresholds or Tanzania business tax rates. They all refer to the tax tables, whether in whole or as specific sections/categories of the tax tables therein. In the section, we publish all 2020 tax rates and thresholds used within the 2020 Tanzania Salary Calculator. This means that if you are aware of a 2020 tax exemption or 2020 tax allowance in Tanzania that you are entitled too BUT it isn't listed here, that we don't allow for it in this version of the Tanzania Salary Calculator. This is simply because we updated our tax calculators based on user feedback, we tailor the Tanzania Salary Calculator to suit our users needs. Our aim is to keep tax calculations in Tanzania simple, we achieve this my making the Tanzania tax calculators relevent to our community's needs, this includes you. So, if you would like a new 2020 tax rates, allowance or threshold adding (or perhaps updating), or if you notice an error in our 2020 tax calculations, simply contact us and we will adjust the tool.
