Taxation

American Samoa is a U.S. territory in the South Pacific, and its tax system is different from that of the United States. Here is a brief overview of the tax system in American Samoa:


Corporate taxation:

- American Samoa has a flat corporate income tax rate of 15% on net income for corporations.

- The tax year in American Samoa runs from October 1st to September 30th.

- Corporate tax returns must be filed by the 15th day of the 3rd month following the end of the tax year, and taxes must be paid by the same deadline.


Personal taxation:

- There is no individual income tax in American Samoa.

- However, residents may still be subject to U.S. federal income tax if they have income from sources outside of American Samoa.


Other taxes:

- American Samoa imposes a 5% excise tax on the sale of certain goods and services, such as alcohol and tobacco products.

- There is also a 4% sales tax on the sale of most goods and services.

- Employers are required to pay social security taxes for their employees.


It is important to note that tax laws and regulations in American Samoa may change, and companies and individuals should seek professional advice to ensure compliance with current tax requirements. Additionally, there may be penalties for late or incorrect filing of tax returns and payments, so it is important to adhere to the tax calendar and deadlines.
