Western Sahara is a disputed territory located in North Africa. It has limited government institutions, and the taxation system in the region is not well-developed.


Since Western Sahara is not recognized as a sovereign state by the United Nations, it does not have its own tax system. Instead, the region is considered part of Morocco, and the Moroccan tax system applies to businesses and individuals operating in Western Sahara.


Morocco has a tax system that includes both corporate and personal income taxes. Corporate income tax is levied at a flat rate of 17.5% on the taxable income of businesses operating in Morocco, including those operating in Western Sahara. 


For individuals, income tax rates range from 0% to 38%, depending on the income level. The tax year in Morocco is the calendar year, and the tax return must be filed by the end of April following the end of the tax year.


As for the process of tax payment in Western Sahara, businesses and individuals must register with the Moroccan tax authorities and obtain a tax identification number. Taxes are paid to the Moroccan tax authorities in the same way as in other parts of Morocco, typically through bank transfers or at tax offices. The tax payment deadlines depend on the specific tax, but in general, taxes are due on a monthly or quarterly basis.
