Hi,

So I have just gotten a raise at work. And I'm not sure whether my taxes are also gonna raise now?
Could anyone enlighten me about when the tax level rises in Poland?

Thank you in advance.

Below 85.528 PLN a year it's 18%, over 85.528 PLN it's 32%.

Okay thanks, so how is this calculated?

Currently I make less than 85.528 a year, but still im paying like 30% in taxes.
With my raise ill be making more, so my question is do you think ill just stay on my current tax level then?

Are you absolutely sure that it is Income Tax that you are paying? What about ZUS?

No, to be honest I have no idea exactly what I am paying.
I just know what gets deducted from my salary every month. Mayve I should check this.
Anyways, what is ZUS?

Maybe, but it wouldnt really make sense since the company is giving me private medicare.
But is paying ZUS obligatory?

YES, it is obligatory, even if you have private medicare. Go and ask someone in HR exactly what you are paying. They will be able to tell you.

18%/32% is only the income tax. There's also ZUS (social insurence) and NFZ (health insurence). Both are obligatory, you can get them lower If you run 1 person company but not all employers are willing to go for such solution, also you're not an employee then, so If they want to end cooperation with you, they can do that easily without bothering with any employment regulations.

With my raise ill be making more, so my question is do you think ill just stay on my current tax level then?

Income tax works the way that you pay 18% till your income is no more than 85.528 PLN gross this year and 32% only for the amount over 85.528 PLN. So for a 100.000 a year it is 85.528 * 0.18 + 14.472 * 0.32.

If you want to see exact figures, at best use some on-line converters.

For example: infor.pl/kalkulatory/brutto_netto.html

in Krok 1 put there your gross salary, skip Krok 2, leave 2012 in Krok 3 and press Oblicz.

You will get the results then:
Brutto = gross
ZUS = social insurence
Składka na ub. zdrow. = NFZ
Zaliczka na podatek = income tax
Netto = net, cash you will actually receive

You'll probably see no big difference in tax itself. For example if you were paying around 30% of tax of your salary, you can expect it will stay on similar level, or it will change slightly when crossing some levels (like 85k/year).

Simpy try this one to see what you'll get: Calculla: Salary in Poland - in English !

There is also some basics of taxes/ZUS explained (in English of course).
