Employee Income Taxes:

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

In Slovakia, the system used for employee income tax is an administrative income tax. This means the employer is responsible for declaring and deducting the income tax of their employees directly from their salaries before payment. The employers handle the tax calculations and remit the necessary amounts to the government, simplifying the process for employees.
