I arrived in Taiwan back in December and have been working at a school for almost three months now. In December, I paid no taxes because I worked for less than two weeks and I guess my school was lazy to report it.
January, I paid 20% tax but nothing was deducted for health insurance or labor insurance because my ARC and health card were still being processed. I’ve just now received my pay for February, and I was surprised to see something deducted for both health and labor insurance.
I knew I’d have to pay health, but this is the first I’ve heard about labor insurance. I did a bit of research here and on Tealit, but I was unable to find out the normal rate on this.
My employer deducted NT$344 for Health and NT$344 for Labor Insurance. Does this sound about right?
