    Here's a heads up regarding tax payment for foreign teachers in Thailand.

    • Some schools withhold tax from the employee's salary, some don't
    • Paying Personal Income Tax at the Revenue Department is the sole responsibility of the employee
    • Employee has to file the tax clearance before the last day of March 2015
    • Immigration Offices might require a copy of the tax clearance receipt and a copy of the PND 91-form (Personal Income Tax form) when extending the permission of temporary stay
    • Labour Offices might require a copy of the tax clearance receipt and a copy of the PND 91-form when renewing the work permit

    Does anyone know if the tax rebates for domestic travel were made official?

    According to the following post: Tax rebate promotes domestic travel : TTR Weekly

    "...individuals who buy local package tours, or hotel accommodation, will be able to list the purchases as deductible expenses against their taxable income for the year. The deductible amount is set at no more than THB15,000"

    and

    "The measures will come into force once it is published in the Royal Gazette."

    Thanks for the post and link. Unfortunately, that site's information was last updated before the domestic travel tax rebate idea was announced.

    does it have to be travel purchased as part of a 'packaged tour'? or can I write off domestic flights and hotels that I booked through the airlines and agoda?

    In Khon Kaen there was a seminar about taxes for local teachers. Surprisingly, even income derived from out of Thailand is taxable here.

    This is if the income is brought into Thailand.

    For example, I have investment accounts that I hold in the US. These accounts pay out dividends which are reinvested. Despite being a significant amount of money, most of it is not taxed in the US, and none is taxed in Thailand. If I were to have the dividend checks deposited into my Thai account, a portion of that might be taxable in Thailand, and all of it would be taxable in the US.

    Provided you do not bring the income into Thailand that you earn from abroad, then there is no tax liability here.

    ::Personal Income Tax::[/QUOTE]

    Probably a stupid question but how would I go about getting a completed copy of the PND 91 form when this is what I am submitting to the tax office. Whenever I have done my taxes I take my tax ID card and statement of earnings from my school. At the tax office they fill in a form for me (I assume it's the PND 91 they are filling in for me).

    Is it just a case of asking for a stamped photocopy of the completed form?

    As I said, it's probably a stupid question, but just wanna make sure I do things right.

    Many thanks, and have a great valentine's day and weekend :thai wai:
