I’ve tried looking for similar posts, but couldn’t find an exact match for my situation. I entered Taiwan on 9/6/2020 (on a COVID-19 Special Entry permit, visiting family here) and I’m still currently in Taiwan (meaning I’ve exceeded the 90-day limit for tax exemption for the calendar year), and during this entire time I’ve been working for my US-based company remotely. Several questions:
- Am I obligated to pay taxes to Taiwan on my US-earned income? I know technically I’m supposed to, but not sure how Taiwan will know (I’m not trying to evade taxes, but it’s just a bit weird for me to double-pay taxes considering the company I work for has no precense in Taiwan). I’ve also never changed my address in my work HR system (according to my work HR system, I’m still in California)
- If I am obligated to pay taxes on my US-earned income during my time in Taiwan, how is the amount calculated? Would I just report the income earned after I arrived in Taiwan? I assume I wouldn’t need to pay taxes to Taiwan for income earned before my arrival.
- On that note, are there any good recommendations for tax professionals in Taiwan that could help me answer my questions?
