The aim of the thesis is to examine which EU Member State has the obligation to provide cross border worker with tax advantages related to a personal and family situation in the European Union and whether Schumacher doctrine is still an effective and appropriate solution in determining the responsible State. One of the main goals of the EU is an open internal market without trade barriers. This objective allows nationals of the Member State to move freely within the European Union without extra taxation or requirements. In order to achieve this goal, Member States shall unite in removing obstacles to the free movement that still exist, mostly due to the various national tax provisions which are not harmonized at the EU level. One of the obstacles that prevent an employee from making a choice to work in another Member State is a failure in obtaining tax benefits in the country of work.
