What are civil taxes?
There are several kinds of taxes all residents have to pay to
the Japanese government. These include income tax (paid to the national
government), prefectural tax (paid to the prefectural government) and civil
taxes (such as the municipal tax and fixed property tax etc.). Civil taxes are
shared by the residents to fund administrative services to ensure a comfortable
life for residents.
People living in Funabashi City including foreign residents as
of January 1 and had income in the previous year are required to report the
amount of their income by March 15. Company employees have this tax deducted
from their salary and their employer takes care of this tax payment.
Payment falls due in four times by the end of each month, June,
August, October and January of the following year. A tax notice and payment
slip will be mailed to the tax payer by City Office in June. You can make your
payment at any major bank for payment slip. If the payment is made on or before
the due date, you can make your payment slips with barcode or postal money
transfers at any convenience store or at a Japan Post Bank.
