Personal Income Tax

Personal income tax in Jersey is based around a 20% rate of tax. There are some deductions and allowances that people can claim off their tax bill.

What is Marginal Tax Relief?

There is also a separate calculation known as ‘marginal relief.’ This calculation is applied to make sure that people who are low to middle income earners do not pay too much tax.

These deductions and allowances and the calculation of marginal relief are all explained on the Taxes Office website:
