Pay and file: step-by-step guide to filing tax returns -
In general, individuals who are resident in Ireland and are from Ireland are taxable on their worldwide income. Assuming you are such an individual, you should complete the various types of foreign income listed in Panel E.

Foreign dividend income is broken down into Great Britain and Northern Ireland dividends, US dividends, Canadian dividends and other dividends. Remember only the net Great Britain and Northern Ireland dividends should be reported and that any encashment taxes paid on US and Canadian dividends are listed.

Likewise, deposit interest income is sub-divided into UK, EU and non-EU interest and you should report any taxes deducted in the relevant jurisdiction as you may be entitled to double taxation relief.

You may have worked abroad previously and are now in receipt of foreign pension income and this should be reported at line 302.

Where you are resident but not domiciled in Ireland and have ticked this box at line 17 of the Form 11, you are assessable on your Irish source income including income attributable to the performance of the duties of a foreign employment in Ireland and remittances of other foreign income to Ireland, that is, a transfer of foreign income into Ireland e.g. by bank wire transfer.

Why the Solar Tax Credit Extension is a Big Deal in 2018 | EnergySage
What is the solar tax credit?

The federal solar tax credit, also known as the investment tax credit (ITC), allows you to deduct 30 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system from your federal taxes. The ITC applies to both residential and commercial systems, and there is no cap on its value. Thanks to the ITC, the average EnergySage Solar Marketplace shopper saved over $5,000 on the cost of going solar in 2017.

Uganda police use teargas to disperse protest against social media taxes
Ugandans continue to mobilize both online and in-person in opposition to a recently imposed tax that forcing citizens to pay 5 cents (USD) per day to use popular social sites like Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Skype: on Wednesday, police used teargas to disperse a crowd of demonstrators in Kampala, Reuters reports.

"A crowd of about 200 people wearing red T-shirts and shouting 'Power! Power' as they marched through downtown Kampala was dispersed after police tried to arrest an independent lawmaker critical of President Yoweri Museveni, a Reuters witness said. Two of the new taxes, one on access to social media and a second on transactions on Mobile Money, have both stoked widespread outrage from telecom firms’ customers. Relations between governments and social media companies are widely watched in Africa, where rapidly growing mobile internet connection is hailed by human rights groups as an essential tool of political and economic development...Opponents of the tax including Amnesty International have said the tax is a move to limit voices critical of long ruling Museveni on the platforms, disguised as a measure to increase public revenues."

The ongoing pushback against the tax has prompted the Ugandan government to "review" the tax, CNN reports.

The real estate war on the west coast that’s tearing Vancouver neighbourhoods apart : CanadaPolitics
Periodic reminder: The problem of sky-high real estate prices would never have existed without market-distorting tax policies. Owner-occupied housing pays tax-free dividends and is exempt from capital gains taxes. This is textbook "how to create an asset price bubble": Taxing income from the asset class differently.

We need a tax on imputed income and an end to the Principal Residence Exemption. Those two tax exemptions add up to tens of billions of dollars a year in "tax expenditures" which fl...

Zambia considers social media clampdown, through new laws or tighter regulation
Zambia's communications minister Brian Mushimba told the country's parliament on Thursday that new social media regulations are needed, telling the lawmaking body that "it is evident that social media in Zambia has become a catalyst for the detachment of members of the Zambian society from our cultural norms," Lynsey Chutel writes for Quartz, citing an AFP report on the speech.

There are no laws drafted at present, so it is unclear whether these measures will come to light. "Mushimba said Zambia already had adequate laws to police online behavior, according to a report in the Lusaka Times. Instead, his department would focus on sensitizing Zambians about responsible use of social media, but would not hesitate to prosecute perceived misuse...This week, Mushimba assured Zambians that the country would not be following Uganda’s example [of implementing a social media tax]. The Zambian government had no plans to introduce a levy on social media because the country already has enough laws to protect Zambians, he said. New policies would not infringe on Zambians’ rights, Mushimba added. The lack of clarity around the new regulations means the process could be drawn out or become obfuscated, making it difficult for Zambians to respond."

Tanzania’s strict new internet laws are driving content creators offline
In May, Tanzania passed new regs requiring content creators - media organizations, but also smalltime bloggers - to pay up in the form of new, mandatory registration and licensing fees that total "two million Tanzanian shillings (930 US dollars)." This is steep, especially in a country " whose GDP per capita is 879 US dollars—and where approximately 70 percent of the population lives on less than two dollars a day." It is unsurprising that the new rules are forcing vloggers, podcasters, and bloggers offline, writes Shayera Dark for The Verge.

"Failure to comply with the regulations — which also forbid online content that is “indecent,” “annoying,” or that “leads to public disorder” — will result in a five million Tanzanian shillings (2,202 US dollars) fine, a jail term of not less than a year or both...'With all of these regulations, [vlogging] is not worth it,' says Faith Hilary, a YouTube creator with about 4,500 subscribers who goes by the handle Tanzanian Vlogger. Hilary won’t be returning to her channel in light of the new regulations. 'I made very small revenue from Google ads, which doesn’t translate to the amount of time I put into the videos and the money I spent on [my] internet bundle. The money I got is nowhere near the licensing fee that is being asked'...Tanzania’s blogosphere is relatively small, which makes it unlikely that taxes derived from online activities will make a significant contribution to the government’s purse. But this law effectively pushes most Tanzanians to the margins of cyberspace, where they can neither speak nor create, while the majority of conversation about and in Tanzania risks becoming an echo chamber for the upper class."

Egypt's proposed tax for Facebook, Google, and more
Just as a "social media tax" is put into force across the Sahara to the south in Uganda, "Egypt’s parliament is evaluating an option to tax people and organizations that advertize on platforms like Facebook and Google," iAfrikan News reports, while noting the distinction that in the case of Egypt, the tax would target advertisers targeting users on big tech platforms and not individual users.

"Egypt is about to reach a strategy allowing the government to implement advertisement taxes on social media websites, especially Facebook and Google. According to Parliament statements, imposing these taxes on the advertising companies will protect the Egyptian advertising market, and adjust its mechanisms. However, it is not fully clear yet how the Egyptian state is going to collect money from advertisers, as some of the companies, which use Facebook and Google to target the Egyptian users, don’t have regional offices inside the country. One of the parliamentarians suggested that implementing these ad taxes on Facebook and Google is an option, but other options and possibilities are still on the table for further discussions."
