Mandatory Military Age

Hi, I’m planning to move back to Taiwan next January.
I’m 39 male who was born in Taiwan, but my parents immigrated to the USA when I was 2. Been in USA since I was 2. Plan is to move back to Taiwan for my company and work there. Wanted to get my Taiwan citizenship back and work as a Taiwanese citizen.
Question: Will I have to do the mandatory military service? I see there are different age maximums. Anyone will knowledge of how this works? Greatly appreciate your help.

No. After 35 you do not.

No.

Conscription age is till December of the year in which you turn 36.

You have one-year grace period, beginning the day next to your return to the Republic of China if you previously had a household registration, or beginning the day next to your initial household registration following your return to the Republic of China if you have never had a household registration.
