I arrived in early 2007 so I’ll make the 183 day rule this year (I will definitely be staying longer). I’m on a JFRV and I’ll be working with a company that’s not used to employing foreigners, they don’t really know the rules (they asked me). So I’m wondering what should I tell them to do with my taxes? Do I have to tell them to withhold 20% every month for 183 days? Or is it legal to pay a normal resident tax rate for the entire year because I’ll be staying longer than 183 days anyway (so no point withholding them if your getting it back later)? I read this topic http://www.forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopic.php?t=59580 and the OP said it was okay but I’m not sure at all as no-one replied to his latest post
So basically I want to tell the company the best solution that won’t give either of us any problems later. Any ideas? Also its not required but it would help if you could also link to a Chinese language page with the revelant tax rules (I did try to find them myself honest). Thanks!
