if someone who was born in peru but actually lives in paraguay, would they receive a tax break for being only a legal resident of paraguay or would they fall under the taxation laws of paraguay like any other citizen of paraguay? how do legal residents differ from actual citizens of any given country as far as taxation purposes go? i know that legal residents of the u.s. fall under fatca and have to pay taxes and get no special treatment from uncle sam when it comes to reporting an offshore bank account but what about other countries like paraguay, egypt, thailand, ect....? when a legal resident discloses where they actually live, who or what determines if they will be treated differently than someone who is an actual citizen of that country? can someone please tell me. thank you.
