What are tax treaties?

Australia has tax treaties with more than 40 countries. Tax treaties are also referred to as tax conventions or double tax agreements (DTA). They prevent double taxation and fiscal evasion, and foster cooperation between Australia and other international tax authorities by enforcing their respective tax laws. You will only be affected by a tax treaty if you are a resident of Australia or the other treaty country.
