Avoidance of Double Taxation

(1) The laws in force in either of the Contracting States will continue to govern the taxation of income in the respective Contracting States except where provisions to the contrary are made in this Agreement.

(2) Where a resident of a Contracting State derives income which, in accordance with the provision of this Agreement, may be taxed in the other Contracting State, the first-mentioned Contracting State shall allow as a deduction from the tax on the income of that resident an amount equal to the income-tax paid in the other Contracting State whether, directly or by deduction. Such deduction shall not, however, exceed that part of the income-tax (as computed before the deduction is given) in the first-mentioned Contracting State which is attributable to the income which may be taxed in the other Contracting State.

(3) The tax paid in the other Contracting State mentioned in paragraph 2 of this Article shall be deemed to include the tax which would have been payable but for the tax incentives granted under the laws of that Contracting State and which are designed to promote economic development.
