The witholding tax rate for non-resident is 18% for this year. If non-resident's salary is under NTD 26,820, the rate will be 6%.
The witholding tax rate for resident is 5% for this year.
The non-resident is one who stay in TW less than 183 days in a calender year.
I am a Taiwanese guy with USA CPA and TW CPA status.

Yes, but do employers legally have to deduct 18 percent for the first six months until a foreigner hits the 183 day mark?

Yes. They are responsible for it and will be held accountable for it if you decide to run off before the prescribed 183 days.

Is there a way to get back the 14% "overtax" (20%-6%) after 6 months ?

It will be refunded when you file, providing you have been on the books (read: paying income tax) more than 183 days.
