A person who has tax arrears may be forced to pay his or her tax debts not only in cash but also by other valuable possessions, such as movable and immovable property, deposits, securities, and other creditor's rights, said the Local Tax Bureau of Taichung City Government.
“When you receive a notice from the Ministry of Justice's branch of Administrative Enforcement Agency, asking you to pay any tax arrears, you must not ignore the order,” Local Tax Bureau said. “Otherwise, the branch office will apply compulsory execution measures on you. For example, your salary income and deposit will be taken into custody and deducted, or your movable and immovable properties may be detained for auction. Even worse, you may be arrested and ordered to pay the expenses for compulsory execution, including the postage for sending you any documents; the handling fees for detaining and processing your deposits; and/or the charges related to real-estate auction, such as newspaper publication fees, boundary identification fees, measuring costs, value evaluation fees, and so forth.”
Local Tax Bureau reminds people to pay their taxes within the time limit stated on the tax bills, to avoid compulsory execution and resulting trouble. If you still have questions, please call 0800-086969 (toll-free) for inquiry.
