Vehicle License Tax is levied during the period from April 1 to April 30 every year. The tax payment notice for 2015 Vehicle License Tax was sent on March 26 and onwards. If you have not yet received the tax payment notice, please take the initiative to contact the concerned branch office of Local Tax Bureau or Motor Vehicles Office, said Local Tax Bureau of Taichung City Government.
In addition to the diverse ways to pay tax, a QR-Code area is printed on the tax payment notice this year. If you want to pay tax by credit card or savings account, please first use your smart phone or tablet to download the QR-Code program and scan the QR-Code from the tax payment notice. You will be linked to the tax service website. Once there, you need to check if the URL is https://paytax.nat.gov.tw. and if your tax payment account numbers and amounts are correct. If they are, you can then enter your credit card numbers or savings account numbers to pay tax online. It is easy, isn’t it? You are welcomed to make use of the new system, said Local Tax Bureau.
