Taxes For Residents Of Chile

You become tax resident in Chile if you spend more than six months in-country or are domiciled in Chile. If you are a nonresident, you pay taxes in Chile only on your income generated within the country.

Chile taxes on worldwide income. But, as a new resident, you will pay tax only on Chilean income for the first three years, which can be extended for an additional three years.

Chile does not tax pensions, retirement benefits, or social security.

The sales tax (known as IVA) is 19%, and applies to many valueadded items. While you may structure your affairs to minimize other taxes here, you won’t escape IVA.

For wage earners, the regular income tax is graduated between 0% and 40%. Here’s a snapshot of the tax table, represented in U.S. dollars, at today’s exchange rate of 620 pesos per U.S. dollar. These are monthly income figures (exclusive of retirement and pension income):
