Taxable income is divided into capital income and earned income

Capital income consists of income generated by your property and assets: dividends, capital gains, rental income, etc. All other income, such as your wages and pension, is earned income.

Capital income and earned income are taxed differently. Capital income has a fixed tax rate. Earned income is taxed progressively – the more income you receive, the higher the tax rate.
