I know this question has already been answered on this forum so apologies or asking again. My employer is adamant tax residency starts on the day your ARC is issued, so I want to double check!
My situation: I arrived in Taiwan in the middle of January and have a contract until the end of July. I want to leave then, as I have a better offer elsewhere. However, my employer is trying to convince me to stay so I can claim a tax rebate next year.
Question 1: From what I’ve read, the tax office will use the landing stamp in my passport to determine my first day of residence. This means that, by the time I leave in early August, I will be entitled to the tax rebate as I will have been here over 183 days. Is this correct?
Question 2: How long before leaving can I process my taxes?
