Taxes on US retirement income?

Post New Topic

Hi, I am planning to move to Austria this summer. All my income is from US military retirement as well as from US veterans affairs compensation. I pay taxes on military retirement in US. My veteran's compensation is not taxable in the US.

So... the question is, will Austria honor the specal non-taxable status (well, such status in US) of my veteran's compensation?

And since I already pay tax on my military retirement income, will that be exluded from taxation in Austria?

I also have Roth IRA accounts that I am not currently paying tax on (I don't see how one can consider it "income" if I am only puttin money in...) and would hope to continue that... For brokerage account I pay the usual US taxes on dividends, distributions.

Basically, as you can imagine, I am trying to limit taxes paid in Austria. I have read about Austrian taxation of "worldwide income" but no details on what constitutes "income" in this sense, and under what circumstances certain types of income are excluded from taxation (either on basis of tax treaties concerning dual taxation avoidance, or on the special nature that some forms of "income" might possess (like Roth, military retirement, veternas compensation).

Thanks!

Brian
