descriptions of the term:

Limited tax liability

Term used in the German Income Tax Act (§ 1 (4) EStG). Natural persons who are not residents of Germany are subject to limited income tax liability if they earn certain types of income (defined in § 49 EStG) in Germany. This applies, for example, to income from guest performances. Where double taxation agreements are in place between the countries concerned, these take effect to prevent double taxation of such income.
