Flat Tax Countries and Jurisdictions September 2010

The table that appears below is a [corrected] current list of countries and jurisdictions (some not internationally recognized) that have adopted a flat tax as of September 1, 2010, with the current rates. It replaces an earlier posting that contained some incorrect numbers and dates. [HT: Thanks Charlie]

I have been unable to find the year of implementation for Nagorno Karabakh and Abkhazia.  I include Hungary based on the government's firm statement that a flat tax will begin on January 1, 2011.  Detailed information about the specific countries appears in previous posts, including an explanation of Paraguay's inclusion.

There are some wrong informations in this chart:
1. Iceland doesn't have flat tax anymore. And before the change to progressive taxation, they had rate of 37,2%. When they implemented flat tax, the tax rate was 35,7%. Jamaica at the moment doesn't have flat tax (http://flattaxes.blogspot.com/2010/01/january-2010-ups-and-downs-with-flat.html).
2. Serbia has witholding tax of 12 %. But they have 2 rates for personal income tax(10% and 15%) so they don't have a flat tax per se. The same is with Paraguay because they have 2% surtax.
2. Lithuania has from 2009 only 15% rate on income tax and Latvia has 26% from 2009. One more thing. According to my informations Lithuania enacted flat tax in 1994.
3. Georgia has now 20% rate on income tax (before that they have 12%, but in 2008 they abolish social security countribution and instead of that raised personal income tax. But they are planning to lower tax rate by 2013 to 15% (http://www.government.gov.ge/old/files/34_522_239771_GOVERNMENT_OF_GEORGIA_PROPOSES_FURTHER_TA.pdf).
4. Czech Republic has rate of 15% but in reality the real rate is 20,1% (1,34 * 15 %) because the social security contributions are taxed together with wages.
5. Mauritius enacted flat tax in 2007 (http://www.cato-at-liberty.org/mauritius-accelerates-move-to-flat-tax/).

One more thing. Albania has 10% corporate tax and Czech's corporate tax rate is 19%.
Still you missed to change Serbian personal income tax rate, which is 12%.

Dear Alvin,

Just to add that some sources also claim Bolivia (since 1986) and Tonga to have a flat tax.
