Do I need to pay resident tax?
Resident tax is a tax to be paid to the municipality where you live. Foreign nationals must pay this tax to the municipality where they live if they have an address in Japan as of January 1 and earn over a certain amount of money. The amount of tax for the following year is determined based on the previous year's income. Resident tax for those who work for a company or others and earn more than a certain amount of money is deducted from their monthly salary.
