Where can I find details of what allowances and/or exemptions are available under Taiwanese income tax law ? I notice ironlady wrote this here:
[quote=“ironlady”]Everyone – don’t forget that if you have any aged parents (over 60), you can deduct them so long as you can offer the following proofs:
- Proof of relationship (first time you deduct only) – i.e., birth certificate.
- Proof that parent(s) is/are still alive during the tax year (they prefer a medical bill from some government source, like Medicare, if possible, but anything will do.)
- Proof that you have “sent the parents money” (this can be ANY amount, even if you normally just send your own money to their account so they can deposit it somewhere else for you that’s OK.) Just have a receipt for a transfer ready and presto, you can deduct the cost of maintaining your dear parent(s) (also works for underaged siblings who are still students and/or handicapped family members).
And – best of all – when the darlings hit 70, you get an even bigger deduction. [/quote]
How much is this worth ? How much is the married allowance worth ?
