I have been in Taiwan for a few days short of one month. I came in on a landing visa (I am American which puts it at 30 days). I have worked for an employer for about 3 weeks. I told them last week that I was not really liking Taiwan that much and have decided to leave. I had bought a round trip ticket from Thailand because I thought I was going to need it for immigration when I arrived. When I told my employer the truth about my deciding to leave, she became EXTREMELY upset. It turns out that my pay day falls on the day after I was planing on leaving. She told me, between screaming and profanity, that she was going to do the "legal" thing and "file the papers with the accountant, immigration and the labor department" and that I would not get any pay early. I understand that she is a bit upset, because she is losing a great teacher. Other teachers have said that she should really just give me an advance on my pay, minus 18% for taxes and file the papers later. She requested a copy of my plane ticket which I gave to her. She then told me that I would get payed on Monday (flight leaves Friday), and that I would have to go and pay my own taxes. I have looked online to see how much it would be to switch my flight to Monday and how much I would have to pay for an overstay on my visa. It is not worth it to me to do this. My question is...
If she "files the paperwork" and I try to leave on Friday (without receiving compensation from the school) is there a chance that immigration will stop me for not paying taxes on money I have not received?
Thanks a bunch for any advise on this.
