As the May tax season is already here, the Dongshih Office of the National Taxation Bureau of the Central Area, M.O.F., advises foreign taxpayers who are obligated to pay taxes to make use of the Ministry of Finance's electronic tax filing and payment service website (https:// tax.nat.gov.tw) to file and pay their comprehensive income tax for the 2022 fiscal year.
The Dongshih Office explained that for those who need to pay taxes, payment can be made by cash, check, chip-enabled financial card, credit card, or current savings deposit account .
For foreign taxpayers who are entitled to receive a tax refund, they can use their New Taiwan dollar deposit account at a financial institution (including post offices) and select the "Direct Refund" service. They can also directly input the account information of the deposit account used for a successful tax refund for the previous fiscal year (tax year 2021) into the system for the refund to be directly deposited into the account. This eliminates the risk of loss, damage, or expiration of a refund check, as well as the need to apply for re-issuance or extension.
The Dongshih Office reminds foreign taxpayers that to successfully complete the tax filing and payment or refund process, they should ensure that their ID numbers match the ID numbers held by the credit card holder or financial institution (including post offices).
For questions or concerns, please call our toll-free phone number 0800-000-321. We look forward to serving you.
