Important Policy Plan

    (A)Taxpayer service

    It is the responsibility of Taxpayer Service to provide information, guidance and assistance to taxpayers who write, telephone or visit a tax office inquiring about local tax obligations.

    Walk-in Service

    Tax office should provide full-time walk-in taxpayer assistance at all locations that have full-time Taxpayer Service Personnel.

    Telephone Service

    The hours of toll-free telephone service should be widely publicized and every effort should be made to encourage taxpayers to use the telephone as a means of service.

    One-stop service

    It is essential for a modern government to promote a one-stop service. Our goal is 『one stop, full service.』 That is, to shorten the process and so keep taxpayers from wasting time going to different counters. By converging all services at one counter, foreign taxpayers can make inquiries, view brochures and forms, apply for assistance, have their documents and income tax forms inspected, and collect tax related documents as well being able to receive the issuance of certification documents quickly and conveniently.

    Bilingual services

    In order to provide foreign taxpayers with a high-quality service without a language barrier, one of the most important features of our services provided by the Local Tax Office is offering bilingual services. The aim of the bilingual services is to provide foreign taxpayers with a detailed response to any inquiry. Likewise, foreign taxpayers are provided with access to forms, brochures and correct, complete samples. All facilities in the Local Tax Office public area are marked bilingual. Additionally, the Local Tax Office website offers bilingual web pages with various kinds of information 24 hours a day.
