Double taxation can also take place within a single country. This usually happens when sub-national jurisdictions have tax powers and jurisdictions have competing rights. In the United States, a person can legally have only one residence. However, when a person dies, different States may claim that the person was domiciled in that State. Intangible personal property can then be imposed by any claiming State. In the absence of specific laws prohibiting multiple taxation and as long as the sum of taxes does not exceed 100% of the value of personal physical assets, the courts will allow such multiple taxation.

For Australians, this represents the same responsibility as if royalties had been earned in Australia, while the US retains the 5% credit. India has concluded a comprehensive double taxation treaty with 88 countries, 85 of which have entered into force.
