Recently I began a new job at a school, whom I don’t have an ARC with (I have my ARC with another school). Now they are telling me they will tax me on my income anyways because they have to claim to the government their business’s income vs. costs; and since they have a certain income, they will have to pay a certain amount of tax, which means taxing ALL teachers the 6% regardless of ARC status with them or not. (I have NEVER encountered this situation before in all the other schools I have ever worked for in Taiwan without an ARC. As far as my experience and knowledge of other’s goes; if you don’t have an ARC with the school you work for, you don’t pay the tax!)
My other boss (whom I DO have an ARC with) said that this would be problematic for me to later claim my taxes… AND that it is illegal for the school to do that (since she and I think that they just really want to pocket the money for themselves).
IS IT INDEED ILLEGAL TO TAX TEACHERS LIKE THIS, EVEN THOUGH THEY DON’T HAVE AN ARC WITH THE SCHOOL?
If you know, please let me know. And if you can even find documented proof of this anywhere on the web, or some other place, would you please lead me to the link so I can print it out and show it to them?
Thank you kindly
