As one who recently stumbled across this site, am a beginner by any stretch of imagination.
More on the taxes thing, specially when leaving Taiwan, can somebody offer insight on this scenario.
Arrive Taiwan - Oct 2004 - Pay tax 20% without refund
Resident in Taiwan - Whole of 2005 - Pay tax at 6%~13%. This goes on as long as I have been logging in 183 days every year.
Now if I leave Taiwan, say in 2007 by March or April for good, I would have logged less than 183 days for 2007. In that case do I pay the difference of 20% tax rate and normal tax rate of 6~13% before leaving.
I guess getting an answer to this question would determine how should I plan to leave Taiwan in any particular year, from the taxes poin of view!. would certainly not mind elongating the stay for few more months if required
Thanks so much for the replies,
