Over 250,000 Tax Households Had Filed Taxes 報稅開跑 已逾25萬戶申報.手機報稅約4成

According to statistics, over 250,000 tax households had filed their taxes as of the morning of May 2. About 40.5 percent filed with their phone. This year's tax deadline has been extended from May 31 to June 30 due to the epidemic.


Many taxpayers wait in line in the rain outside the taxation bureau. 

Taxpayer: “I'm old and it's faster if I file in person than if I try to file online.”

Taxpayer: “I live nearby and I normally get up this early anyway.”

The bureau set up counters outside the building due to the epidemic and is only processing tax returns at these counters. However, it only has a few counters open and even early birds had to wait 40 minutes to get to the front of the line.

Taxpayer: “My computer is broken so I had to come in person. Also, it's really slow. I thought there wouldn't be that many people at 8:30 a.m. and I was the fourth person in line, but I've been waiting 40 minutes and they're still only on the second person.”

According to statistics, over 250,000 tax households had already filed as of the morning of May 2. Of this number, 40.5 percent filed with their phone and 38 percent with their citizen digital certificates. The rest used their national health insurance cards. The government updated its tax app this year with editable forms and different payment methods.

Su Jain-rong, Finance Minister: “May 1 is a holiday and most people try to file on the first day after that. That's why there's a long line. They can choose to file online or with their phone. We are providing extremely convenient services so if your tax return is very simple and there are no figures that need to be revised, you should file on your phone.”

The Ministry of Finance has extended the tax deadline from May 31 to June 30 under certain conditions due to the epidemic. An estimated 6.53 million tax households and 990,000 businesses are expected to take advantage.

 

 

 

拿著厚厚的一疊文件資料,待在座位區等候叫號,儘管外頭飄著毛毛細雨,台北國稅局一早仍來了不少等候報稅的民眾。

報稅民眾說:「年紀也大了用網路的話比較慢,就直接過來,過來的話(報稅)更快。」

另一位報稅民眾也提到:「因為我家就住附近而已,所以說差不多也就這個時間起床,然後就過來。」

由於疫情嚴峻,確診人數增加,國稅局採報稅分流,盡量在戶外的臨櫃報稅,而不是在室內,只是相比過往的室內,戶外報稅櫃台少了許多,有民眾一等就是40分鐘都還沒輪到。

報稅民眾說:「因為我電腦壞了,所以我沒辦法用不得已跑來,而且我發現都速度很慢,我以為8點半不會那麼多人,我排的也算前面是4號,可是他這個現在只到2號,我應該(等)40分鐘有了。」

財政部長蘇建榮一早也到台北國稅局視察申報情形,根據統計,截至今日上午已有25萬多戶完成申報,其中手機報稅佔40.5%,3成8是使用自然人憑證,其餘民眾則使用健保卡等來報稅。事實上,為了提升手機報稅便利性,今年手機報稅2.0版新增「編修功能」,民眾可直接在手機進行所得或扣除額修改扶養親屬等資料的編輯,也增加了多元支付功能,來鼓勵民眾多加利用。

財政部長蘇建榮表示:「往年在5月1日因為勞動節放假,民眾都搶著在第一天來申報,所以會造成(人多)這樣的一個情況,在網路申報也好,手機申報也好,都已經提供非常便利的服務了,所以如果你的所得資料非常簡單,那也沒有修改所謂的撫養親屬或是所得資料的話,扣除額的資料也非常簡單,那我是鼓勵用手機報稅。」

由於疫情緊張,財政部也延長了所得稅報稅期限,截止日從原本的5月31日全面延到6月30日,估計將有綜所稅653萬個人申報戶、營所稅99萬家企業申報戶可適用。
