It's tax time here

| No Comments

It's tax time here in Japan. National, city, and metropolitan taxes are due on Friday. Do I have any of mine done? No.

Last Friday, I went to our ward office to pick up forms but got so confused that I left with one form but no instructions. Trust me, you can't do this two page tax filing without instructions. So this morning, I will return for instructions and head over to the national tax office (just down the street) for the other set of paperwork I need.

I don't earn a lot of money, so my taxes should be fairly straightforward. But figuring out the instructions, which are in Japanese, will be a bit of a trial. Today I get the paperwork. Tomorrow I read the instructions. Wednesday I fill in the forms, and Thursday I will file. And if my plan goes awry, I have until Friday to get it back on track.
