Mexican Agreement  

AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF AUSTRALIA AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED MEXICAN STATES FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBLE TAXATION AND THE PREVENTION OF FISCAL EVASION WITH RESPECT TO TAXES ON INCOME  

ARTICLE 4   Resident  

1  
For the purposes of this Agreement, a person is a resident of a Contracting State if the person is a resident of that Contracting State for the purposes of its tax.

2  
A person is not a resident of a Contracting State for the purposes of this Agreement if the person is liable to tax in that State in respect only of income from sources in that State.

3  
A person, who in relation to any income, is a partnership, an estate of a deceased individual, or a trust (other than a partnership, an estate of a deceased individual, or a trust the income of which is exempt from taxation under the law of a Contracting State relating to its tax) shall not be treated as a resident of a Contracting State except to the extent that the income is subject to tax in that State as the income of a resident of that State, either in the hands of that person or in the hands of a partner or beneficiary, or, if that income is exempt from tax in that State, it is so exempt solely because it is subject to tax in the other State.

4  
Where by reason of the preceding provisions of this Article an individual is a resident of both Contracting States, then the status of the person shall be determined in accordance with the following rules:


(a) the person shall be deemed to be a resident only of the Contracting State in which a permanent home is available to the person;


(b) if a permanent home is available to the person in both Contracting States, or in neither of them, the person shall be deemed to be a resident only of the Contracting State with which the person ' s economic and personal relations are closer. For the purpose of this subparagraph, an individual ' s citizenship or nationality of one of the Contracting States shall be a factor in determining the degree of the individual ' s personal and economic relations with that Contracting State.

5  
Where by reason of the provisions of paragraph 1 a person other than an individual is a resident of both Contracting States, then it shall be deemed to be a resident only of the State in which its place of effective management is situated.
