I was very excited to apply for an APRC because I’ve been here over 5 years but then I saw that the minimum income necessary is like 35k/month.
I’ve been listed as making the minimum income, like 25?k/month.
My job that hired me is a buxiban, (I wanted to be legal and worry free) so more legal than kindy but my boss kept telling me that there were barely enough students and that we needed to go this route. He didn’t even ask me, he just said this is how we’ll do it.
Every year I kept saying that the taxes here are very reasonable and I wanted to pay a little more as a matter of principle, and to be positive and spread the wealth, but he kept saying I didn’t need to and that times are hard and stuff.
Probably 90% of foreigners I’ve known here are working illegally so I always thought, uhhhh, ok whatever.
Now I’m stung. I feel fuckin horrible like things are totally screwed up now and I just wasted the last five years of time for just a little bit of money.
Can I go to the tax office and pay more? And then use the new papers as proof of minimum income? Or will that make problems?
Can I say that I bought and then upsold things for a profit on the side to make an income and then pay taxes for that? Would that get me in trouble? Would they ask a lot of questions?
Is there any chance I’d be making trouble or would it be a piece of cake?
I’m already married to a non taiwanese girl, and I can’t have 2 wives, though there are dozens of yummy chicks here, damn it.
I hate the feeling that if I quit or get fired or laid off or something that I’ll have an extremely short time to get another job, (I don’t even know how long) or do a visa run or some damn fucking thing. And it’s harder than granite to change jobs legally and safely, so many schools go on vendetta kicks.
I want to be able to just chill and relax.
Somebody please, please help me. I feel really horrible.
