Engerim -

Two (2) simple solutions - You chose:

1. Raise your price by NT$500. Keep them as a client.

2. Next time, suggest that they can avoid the "problem" of taxes and transfer fees by simply giving you a nice red envelope,
containing NT$3500, when you turn in your invoice. Simple, quick and no "problems" to worry about.

Don't sell yourself too cheap and always get the money.

I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.
