My former landlord was the landlord from hell and (long story short) will not return my 2 months deposit.
At this point I plan to go to TMM office and show them the contract. Hopefully that will help.
It has also been advised to me to “report” my former landlord to the tax office as he may not be paying taxes. I am open to this HOWEVER I only lived there for 2 months and there is thus a very limited amount of potentially taxable money from me that was actually transferred. Also, he would obviously not be required to pay tax on the money immediately anyway.
So what are my options (if any) for “reporting” my former landlord to the tax office?
I have sent my former landlord the TMM office’s web site link and have told him I intend to go see them to help get my money back. With that he changed his tune from a threatening tune to one of trying to put me on a guilt trip (me telling him I plan to go to TMM is obviously affecting him and showing him that I will not be bullied).
What I would ideally like now is a web site link of a tax office that I will send him and tell him that I plan to also go see them. Suggestions?
Also: this may or may not be true, but I have been advised by Taiwanese friends that any contract that me and him signed may not even be considered legally binding anyway.
I have also read (on this forum) that it is illegal to not return the 2 months deposit (even if the tenant leaves early and even if it is on the contract as the contract may not be legally binding anyway).
Thank you very much for taking the time to read.
Any tips on getting my money back are appreciated.
