The National Taxation Bureau of Kaohsiung, Ministry of Finance stated that in order to improve the convenience of tax payment, starting from September 16 this year, the tax payment limit at convenience stores has been increased to NT$30,000 per transaction, and a variety of new non-cash payment instruments have been added.
The Bureau further explained that when taxpayers receive tax bills for individual income tax, individual house and land transactions income tax, profit-seeking enterprise income tax, business tax, specifically selected goods and services tax, futures transactions tax, securities transactions tax, tobacco and alcohol tax, commodity tax, estate tax and gift tax, if the tax payable is less than NT$30,000, taxpayers can choose to pay at 7-Eleven, Family Mart, Hi-Life, and OK convenience stores before the payment deadline stated in the tax bill.
The Bureau emphasized that as the four major convenience stores currently have a total of about 11,000 stores in Taiwan, people’s tax payment is no longer restricted by time. In addition to the traditional over-the-counter cash payment limit being increased to NT$30,000 per transaction, non-cash payment instruments such as "physical credit cards," "mobile payment" and “electronic ticketing” are also allowed to be used for tax payment over the counter, making tax payment easier.
If taxpayers have any questions, they are welcome to call the toll-free number at 0800-000-321, and the Bureau is glad to be of service.
