So far as Tsuki is concerned, are you under that threshold? Technically if you work on behalf of a company and do so from taiwan you may still not be taxable if what you do has nothing to do with Taiwan.
If you , say, manage a liaison office in Taiwan for a foreign company. YEs you are liable for all moneys earn thus. But if you write articles , say, for a foreign mag that are NOT about Taiwan in any way , shape or form you could say that has nothing to do with Taiwan. Especially if its not a huge amount of money we are talking about. The TW govt likely has MUCH bigger fish to fry then.

Actually you pay your taxes at the end of the year yes? SO none of the money is withdrawn by the bank on your behalf (they cant do this as they are not your employer). So you will be taxed the same rate as a local who has been in taiwan over 183 days of the calendar year. The only problems comes when your total for the year falls under 183.
