1  
Where under this Convention any income or gains are relieved from tax in a Contracting State and, under the law in force in the other Contracting State, a person in respect of that income or those gains is taxed by reference to the amount thereof which is remitted to or received in that other State and not by reference to the full amount thereof, then the relief to be allowed under this Convention in the first-mentioned State shall apply only to so much of the income or gains as is taxed in the other State.
