Taxes & Payroll in Morocco

Employee Income Taxes:

Individual income tax rates in Morocco are based on progressive tax brackets.

In Morocco, the system for personal income tax collection operates on a withholding basis , where the employer is responsible for declaring and remitting their employees’ income tax to the government. This administrative approach simplifies the process for individuals, as those employed by a single Moroccan entity and earning solely employment income are not required to file a return. However, individuals receiving income from non-resident entities or multiple employers must file a tax return by February 28 of the following year​.

Tax Brackets

0%: 0 – 30,000MAD
10%: 30,001 to 50,000MAD
20%: 50,001 to 60,000MAD
30%: 60,001 to 80,000MAD
34%: 80,001 to 180,000MAD
38%: >180,000MAD

Sample Calculation

Tax on a 300,000 MAD annual income:

0 * 0.00 = 0
(30,000 – 0) * 0.10 = 3,000
(50,000 – 30,000) * 0.20 = 4,000
(60,000 – 50,000) * 0.30 = 3,000
(80,000 – 60,000) * 0.34 = 6,800
(180,000 – 80,000) * 0.38 = 40,000
(300,000 – 180,000) * 0.38 = 45,600

0 + 3,000 + 4,000 + 3,000 + 6,800 + 40,000 + 45,600 = 102,400 MAD in taxes
