Someone help me make sure I understand the tax situation for teachers in Taiwan. :s If you begin working before July 1st, you get 20% taken from your check but get it all back the following year at tax time? When do you permanently revert to a lower tax bracket (I thought I read 6% somewhere), or does that never happen?
When evaluating a job salary and planning to start in June of '09, can taking off 20% from the listed salary give me an accurate reflection of my take home pay for the next 12 months???
