It’s tax season. Many foreigners do not understand the basic style of Japan’s tax system.
They cannot do not understand which documents are required. They cannot read the documents
and cannot write kanji. When I first came to Japan, doing the annual tax return (確定申告)
was very stressful.
I filed my tax return on Wednesday this week. I have lived in Japan for many years now so I
am getting used to it. But for some our teachers, it is almost impossible for them to do
it without some help. For this reason, today our office manager, Ono-san went to Hiratsuka
to help Sam and Clancy file their tax returns.
