Income Tax (National Tax)
Income tax (shotoku-zei) is levied on income earned in one year between January and December. Income tax is based on a self-assessment system, and taxpayers must file final returns between February 16th and March 15th.
However, if you are a company employee (salaried worker), income taxes are deducted from your monthly paycheck and the year-end adjustment (fixation and settlement of the amount of income tax for the year) is handled by your employer; therefore, you do not need to file final returns in principle. However, if you have additional income or claim a deduction in medical expenses, you will need to file a tax return on your own.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to receive a tax refund. For details, please contact your employer or your nearest Taxation Office.
