Taxes and Dues in Japan
This site provides you a brief guide about Japanese taxes and dues imposed on individuals. They are rather complicated and very difficult for most people to understand. If you were a Japanese, you can easily ask for necessary explanations at the relevant bureaus. But a foreigner can not do so unless he/she is exceptionally good at Japanese. You must feel uneasy to be forced to pay taxes and dues, which you can not understand well.
I hope this site helps you to know better about the Japanese taxes and dues and to live in this country more relaxedly.
