Monaco has the world's second-highest GDP nominal per capita at US$153,177. It also has the world's lowest poverty rate and the highest number of millionaires and billionaires per capita in the world. Since 1870, Monaco has not levied a personal income tax on its residents.
Considering the location of Monaco, which is easily accessible by plane, boat or train, it is very common for residents to work and even live in other countries in Europe. Residents do not pay capital gains taxes and the government does not levy net wealth taxes
