In Guyana, social security deductions made by employees towards the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) are not deductible from their gross income for the purpose of calculating taxable income. This means that the contributions towards social security are made from an employee's income after income tax has been applied, rather than reducing the taxable income base. Therefore, these social security contributions do not affect the calculation of income tax liabilities for individuals in Guyana.
