I was just wondering if my Taiwanese girlfriend can claim my taxes on my behalf from my previous employer in Taiwan without me having to be in the country. I am in Australia at the moment so I can’t do it myself. I think I have read somewhere before that it is possible to get someone else to claim the taxes for you. My girlfriend who is in Taiwan called my old school and spoke to the accounts person who apparently said to her that I would have to do it myself. Is that right or is the accounts clerk just trying to stiff me for some reason?? If I was to fax some letter to my previous employer authorising my girlfriend to act on my behalf should that be sufficient??
Thanks for your help
