The problem of tax equalization arises when an individual is working for an international company and starts to work abroad his home country. There are questions of who should pay taxes and how much should they pay. Usually, the individual is receiving a net pay, which is the money they would have received in their home country after taxation. However, the company is obliged to pay taxes for its employee. If they are working in a country with lower taxes, the company takes the savings. On the other hand, if they work in a country with higher taxation, the company pays the excess. Either way, the amount received by the employee is same. If the policy only benefits the employee (reducing taxes if working abroad results in higher taxes, but not raising them if working abroad results in lower taxes), then it is referred to as a tax protection policy.
