Does anybody know how much I'll be fined for paying late?

1%? It's peanuts. It's sure as hell a lot less than the 40K that you've been screwed out of.

Do you think if he takes all the paperwork he has to the tax office, he will be fined for paying late? After all, according to his pay slips - the only info he had before now - the school had deducted 10% and sent it in to the tax office. If they had, he would have gotten a refund. It's the school that has done something wrong. Won't the tax office instead fine the school for cheating on their taxes and lying about their employee's taxes?

On $40K paid with under half a million in income, my guess is that you would be getting over $30k back. The school is giving you the run around and you are out that money...Up to you to either take it back to the school and let them know that you have the pay slips and decide whether or not you want to pursue the matter with the tax office and the CLA. I would.

I would too. You are definitely out a fair bit of money.

im in a similar situation... where my employer hasn't been withholding taxes. I was in Taiwan for all of 2013 minus a month in October... Now they are telling me first year I didn't have to pay taxes... I told them every other foreigner has to pay taxes.... Am I supposed to go to the tax office and pay taxes myself? I am thinking to leave Taiwan for a few months soon and possibly come back. Will I have to show proof of paying taxes to get my ARC renewed. What should I do? They haven't been paying taxes but they haven't deducted anything from my check either. They are sort of claiming like they don't know and all this. I also only know the little bit I have recently read about...
