The Myanmar people in Japan earning an average monthly salary of 200,000 yen will have to pay a monthly income tax of 2000 yen and those earning less than 200,000 will have to pay 1000 yen, according to the Myanmar embassy in Tokyo.

All Myanmar expatriates working abroad will have to pay 2 percent income tax on their monthly salary with effect from 1 October, the Ministry of Planning and Finance announced on 22 November in its notification number 79/2023.

Actually, those earning 200,000 yen a month will have to pay 4000 yen on 2 percent basis, but 2000 yen is deductible.

Upon the submission of proof, those earning less than 200,000 yen will only have to pay 1000 yen after deducting 2000 yen relief from 3000 yen payable on 150,000 monthly salary.

The Myanmar embassy will provide the tax receipts upon request.

In recent days, Myanmar embassies in Singapore, South Korea and Malaysia have also issued statements on tax payment.
