Poland's Finance Ministry said that a new convention on avoiding double taxation with the United States will be signed on February 13. The details have not been disclosed so far but the ministry said that it consulted the regulations with Poles living in the US. The convention will have to be ratified after it is signed, but the ministry expects it to come into force before the end of 2013.
The details of the convention are confidential right now, and will be released to the public after it is signed. However, Rzeczpospolita reports that it will include provisions to tax the pensions of Poles who will return to Poland from the US. This sparked complaints from Polish communities in the US.
