Hungary open to new double taxation avoidance treaty with US
“The aim of the Hungarian government is to ensure a secure and competitive economic environment for taxpayers, which is why it strives to strengthen US-Hungarian cooperation on tax matters,” the ministry said in a statement.
The consequences of an earlier US decision to terminate the existing double taxation avoidance treaty with Hungary “are unfavourable for both countries”, Varga said.
Varga noted that some 1,700 US-owned companies employ around 107,000 people in Hungary. Bilateral trade between the two countries has reached an annual 8.3 billion dollars, he added.
