In Mauritania, social security contributions made by employees are typically not deductible from their gross income for the purpose of calculating taxable income. This means that the contributions towards social security by employees are calculated before taxes are applied to their income, and thus do not reduce the taxable base of an individual's income. The structure of the tax and social security systems in Mauritania is designed to ensure the funding of social benefits while maintaining a straightforward approach to income taxation.
