      Foreign tax credit to reflect personal allowances


      The Supreme Tax Court has followed an ECJ judgment in basing the maximum foreign tax credit on the total German tax payable on the foreign income as calculated under the assumption that personal allowances and reliefs are first set against the domestic income. The court also held the “per country” limitation to be in accordance with community law.
