Discussion in 'Tax issues' started by Stamp, 4 Feb 2015.
In the past the tax receipt was, on its own, adequate proof of taxes filed and (if needed) paid.
Filed my PND.91 today.
Have to pay 0 THB tax. :thumbsup2:
is that a good thing Stamp or a reflection on the poor salaries offered by Thai Schools?
Damn.... lucky (or perhaps unlucky) you. Even with deductions from my gross salary I still had to pay over 122k thb on my taxable income.
my dick is bigger than your dick. Does it ever tire you?
:no: insecurity and all that. knowing everything can be mentally taxing.
That's what happens if you earn 100,000+ THB per month. Don't worry. You're still a nice lad and appreciated on Thailand Teaching. :
No, but coming up with a month's salary in cash to pay the tax man can be taxing.....
Sort of like having an 11-month contract.
Hmm...my school doesn't give a statement of income. I certainly don't wanna rock the boat when the director just reversed his decision to let all the permanent hires go. Also, the wife said, "Ya Pung! Don't file any taxes!" I'll take my chances with that and blame her when all goes foul. What kinda tax penalties are we looking at here? Anyone know?
But the labour office need a tax receipt to renew your work permit, right? What then? Unless you plan to move elsewhere, and take the chance that the labour department haven't linked their databases yet.
Some do. Some don't.
I have never shown my tax receipt. I keep it in my bag just in case and for curiosity's sake but have not been asked to provide it.
Chuachinsoon's point about moving elsewhere may prove true. Even if the databases aren't linked, they may still ask you to show tax receipts from last year.
I would be wary of those folks who where let go reporting your school to the authorities.
How much are you going to risk by not paying your taxes? I'm guessing somewhere between zero baht (don't forget the deduction for the wife/wife's family) and 100 000k.
I say don't pay and then worry about it constantly until you are asked for it at the immigration office. Then when you are asked for it you can fight the fire, risk not getting an extension and have to leave the country. Hell its only the law and what do they know? I mean, it's not like you use public services, roads lighting, hospitals, airports, police. So don't pay the tax. Good decision. Forget about your social responsibility just do whats right for you thats what I say
Great. There was a discussion last year somewhere in another thread about minimum tax payments for foreign teachers or some such thing (I can't find the thread now) but you have now proved my point that there is none. 2:
In our province it's both Immigration and the Labour Office.
