The payment period of the house tax in 2024 is from May 1, 2024 to May 31, 2024

The Taxation Administration has announced that the statutory payment period for the house tax in 2024 is from May 1, 2024 to May 31, 2024. Taxpayers are reminded to complete payment within the given timeframe.

The Taxation Administration states that the tax payment notice will be sent to taxpayers by mail by the tax collection authorities under their local governments. If taxpayers have lost or failed to receive their payment notices, they may apply for re-issuance with the local tax collection authorities in the same district where the house is located. Taxpayers may also use their Citizen Digital Certificate, Ministry of Economic Affairs Certification Authority (MOEACA) IC card, financial certificate, TW FidO to log into the local tax online filing website (https://net.tax.nat.gov.tw/) for inquiries and payments. The Taxation Administration reminds taxpayers not to click on links from unknown sources to avoid being deceived.

In order to provide multiple convenient channels to pay tax, the Ministry of Finance provides many options, such as convenience stores, financial institutions, ATM transfers, demand (savings) deposit accounts, designated account transfers, credit cards, IC ATM cards, and electronic payment accounts. Also, taxpayers can download the “Mobile Payment Provider Tax Payment App” and scan the QR-Code (use 'TWQR' as the common logo) on their tax notices. The Taxation Administration would like to remind taxpayers who have made an agreement with a financial institution or postal institution to transfer tax through a designated deposit account to please reserve a sufficient amount of deposit in the account for withdrawal. The local tax collection authorities will not ask taxpayers to confirm the balance of their deposit account via phone call. Please seek verification to avoid fraud.

The Taxation Administration further explained that the house tax is a municipality and county (city) tax, and the tax revenue is one of the main financial resources of local governments. Various construction projects of local governments, including expenditures on education, culture, health care, social welfare, roads, bridges, ditches, public security, firefighting, etc. that are closely related to people's lives, all rely on house tax revenue. In order to promote local construction and prosperity, taxpayers are urged to pay the house tax as scheduled.

The Taxation Administration states that in order to reduce the tax burden on individual owner-occupied houses, encourage effective utilization of houses, and rationalize the house tax, the House Tax Act was amended by the Ministry of Finance and promulgated by the President on January 3, 2024, and version 2.0 of the differential tax rate of the house tax will be implemented on July 1, 2024. The new house tax will be first levied from May 1, 2025 in accordance with the grand total of the houses one owns in the country and the differential tax rate. This means that the house tax in 2024 is still levied according to the old system.
