But I guess, depends on the clerk

I've heard that you can just show them a printed itinerary of a round-trip without actually having to buy the round-trip tickets. Do they need to see that you bought round-trip tickets at the Taiwan embassy in the US before they'll give you a visitor visa?
Can I just buy a one-way ticket to Taiwan without any trouble?
Has everyone on here whose gone to Taiwan for work had to buy round-trip tickets (or one-way ticket plus ticket to Hong Kong), before you could obtain a visa and enter the country?

I live in a major US city where there's a Taiwanese Embassy, so I can apply for my visa in person. For the sake of avoiding hassle and playing it safe, I'm thinking of just going ahead and buying the round-trip (with the return flight scheduled for about a month and a half after the initial flight). I'm hoping as long as I cancel the return flight a month in advance, I can get a pretty full refund and shouldn't incur much of a charge.
Is that doable? What kind of charge should I expect if I do that?
