【PDCA日記 Vol. 691「住民税の謎」】
＜Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「住民税」=「resident tax」＞
「住民税の謎」を英語にする場合、「Mystery of resident tax」とすればよいですね😊。
I think that people who have turned from corporate workers to self-employed have experience, but what comes when you think "Business gradually started to get on track" is the request for resident tax payment.
One of the strange things about the Japanese tax system is this resident tax, which is a mysterious tax that is taxed a year later for some reason.
It seems that some people do not pay the resident tax at times, but not paying the tax not only causes trouble but also worsens the relationship with the authorities and should be avoided.
It is difficult to escape from taxes, so if you have challenges, you should consult the government office first.
The Japanese government basically listens to the people who are in trouble, so if you ask for help, the situation may improve😊.
Let's function PDCA today!
P.S. As you may know from those who have experience of entreprenuer or self-employment in Japan, income tax is paid to the tax office and residence tax is paid to the municipal office.
This kind of administrative system is behind the payment of residence tax one year later.
Politicians are reluctant to raise these systems on election issues because reforms in administrative and governance structures are less likely to be voted on.
However, the improvement of this part is the most necessary for Japanese society today.
I am familiar with this area so please contact me if you are interested 😊.
