Individual Income Tax

Income tax is calculated based on a tax rate band. The individual income tax is 20% until a certain level of income and 40% for any amount above that income. 20% is known as the standard band rate whereas the 40% is known as the higher band rate. The amount of income at the different tax rate bands is dependent on marital status.
