Taxes in Belize

Belize has some taxes as most of the countries have. Depending on the type of tax, only residents or people working in Belize for a Belizean employer have to pay it, but there are also some general taxes which tourists also pay.


The most common tax in Belize is the General Sales Tax (GST), also called Sales Tax or VAT (Value Added Tax). On every consumer product this tax is added. 
 
For Belize residents who are working in Belize for a Belizean employer also the income tax is important. 
 
For people living in Belize it is good to know how the inheritance will be taxed by the succession tax, in case of death.
