Madagascar Enhances its Flat Tax

To improve the investment climate in the African island nation of Madagascar, located off the southeast coast of the African continent, the government’s 2010 budget reduced the flat-rate personal income tax from 24% to 23%, with a personal allowance of MGA 250,000 (US$1 = Malagasy Ariary 1,942), about $125 per month, or $1,500 a year.  Corporation tax was incorporated into the income tax code at the same 23% rate.
