Landlord refuses to sign the monthly rent contract...

Postby Makriel » 23 May 2012, 17:50

I'm paying NT$15,500 per month for monthly rent. The tax ladies asked me to bring in my contract because if I don't, they can only claim taxes up to the amount of about 7,000. What to do?

Ask the tax ladies to write a polite note pointing out what you said above and then take it to your landlord. There should be no reason why they won't sign if it's all legit.
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

The landlord is likely not paying tax on the rental income. If he agrees to sign it, he'll probably raise your rent to cover his tax bill. More likely he'll just refuse to sign it and tell you that you have to move out.

Ok...I found this: even a ATM receipt that I've paid will be accepted

Phew, well done for finding that out. Just keep in your mind now that your landlords refusal possibly marks them out to be a member of the Shady McShaderson tribe, who are a billion or more strong family, with members worldwide. Keep your eye out for other shifty things in the coming months. I won't go putting thoughts in your head about potentialities, just keep a close eye on them for signs of shiftiness. :D

All landlords are shifty, in point of fact. It's merely a question of degree.

But now you'll have pissed off the landlord as soon as he gets contacted by the tax office about how he forgot to declare his rental income ...

Yep. Rich people everywhere believe that taxes are only for poor people. Therefore, paying the tax on his rental income is your problem, not his. Kudos to the OP for pointing out to the landlord that, actually, income tax is paid by the person earning that income. However, this will come as an immense surprise to the landlord, and he will take some sort of revenge for your impudence.

I think most landlords will refuse to declare their rental income. That seems to be common on Taiwan. And you could deduct the rent? Most salary paying stiffs didnt have that luxury. I don't recall a line on the tax statement that i could deduct my rent?

Got the standard deduction and the exemption and all that.

In the usa same thing. No place to deduct your rent, unless you were making poverty wages.

Im talking personal tax here, not business tax.
