this is very misleading because there are different types of capital. real estate, securities, equities... and each type of capital will have different tax rules applied to it. so you would have to make a table with columns for each capital in order for this to make any sense.

i can link to here and it would seem that so many countries in europe have 0% CGT but in reality it's bs because you need to look at specific country and at specific type of capital.

Puerto Rico offers zero taxes on capital gains accrued after your move there.

2. Incentives for Individual Resident Investors (formerly Act 22)

Act 22 offers tax breaks for individual traders and investors who become bona fide residents of Puerto Rico. This incentive is primarily used to eliminate capital gains on stocks, bonds, and cryptocurrencies.

Key incentive highlights:
  • Act 22 cuts capital gains taxes to zero on any appreciation of your stocks, bonds, crypto, etc. incurred after you move to Puerto Rico.
  • Enjoy a 0% tax rate on interest, dividends, and royalties from Puerto Rican sources.
Important: Act 22 can only slash your taxation on income originating in Puerto Rico; not elsewhere. Full capital gains tax elimination only applies to capital gains accrued on your assets after you moved to Puerto Rico.

This means that if you invested in Apple stock 20 years ago, and are sitting on serious capital gains before moving to Puerto Rico, you won’t be able to avoid paying tax on it.

But any stock appreciation during your time in Puerto Rico as a bona fide resident will be tax-free.


Would be useful to include holding period exceptions.

The map in one of the posts above makes Belgium and Slovakia look like "0% heaven" and Germany like "26% hell" but if you look into it, you'll find that Belgium actually has the tax hidden somewhere else with a different name and meanwhile Germany has 1-year holding period after which the tax do not apply. Slovakia on the map says 0% but if you had capital gains e.g. on crypto you'd have to pay total of 39% - up to 25% tax plus 14% health insurance (yes you must pay "health insurance" on your capital gains so it is basically not insurance but another form of tax just with a different name).

Don't forget about Malta and Ireland as non-dom. I guess UK non-dom status which lasts only ten years might be gone in the future.
