The tax year in Senegal is a calendar year running from January to 31 December. Joint returns are not permitted, thus each individual is required to file independently. An employee whose only source of income is derived from employment is exempt from filing a tax return as it is required by the employer to withhold and remit the taxes. Should a taxpayer receive an income other than that coming from an employment, he/she is required to declare the total amount of income once a year. Returns are filed on or before 31 January or 30 April, depending the type of income. Penalties are impose on late payments, late filing, failure to file and or filing incorrectly.
An individual will be considered a resident for tax purposes if he/she has a permanent place of dwelling in Senegal, or his/her center of interest is located in Senegal, or lastly, if the individual is present in the country for more than 183 days over any 365-day period. Residents are taxed on their worldwide income while non-residents will only be taxed on their Senegal-source income.
All sources of income, such as wages, salaries, commercial or non-commercial activities and proceeds from agricultural are considered taxable income. Benefits-in-kind are taxable in accordance with the sales published by the tax administrator or in accordance with their fair market value.
