I know this has been asked (and answered) before, and I have searched extensively both on Forumosa and that other website (that will not be named) but I can’t find the answer.
So, my questions is, what is the procedure and timeline for filing your taxes before you leave Taiwan permanently?
I have two issues - first is my 2005 taxes, which I am hoping to receive my income statement for shortly. Second is the income that I have earned and will earn before I leave on February 23rd.
Assuming I get the accountant to give me an earnings statement for 2006 prior to Feb 23rd, and I take that and my 2005 statement in to the tax office, when do you think I would be able to get my refund checks? I will be travelling around SEAsia for several weeks, and returning to Taiwan in April before I go home. Is it possible that I will be able to get my checks by then? If not, then what do I do?
Thanks for the help!
