Hello all, I have a slight situation and was hoping that someone might be able to provide some insight:
I arrived in Taipei to teach English in mid January and signed a contract with a company for a year. My contract does not go into effect until I am issued my ARC which should be any day now. I have started to recieve paychecks with the standard 20% tax taken out. My question is the following: If I choose to break contract and leave early (say, in December), can I still file for my 14% that is due back to me at the end of the fiscal year? I realize that I won’t be here to do it but one of my friends would be willing to help me out…am I still eligible for that return if I break contract or must I forfeit it all to the gov’t?
Thanks in advance.
