Hi to all Aussies on this forum. I have a question about being taxed in Oz when/if I go back home permanently to live. I stayed out of Oz for two years when I came to Japan so I completed the non residency requirements. This meant I didn`t have to pay tax on my earnings in Japan.
But I read somewhere (another forum where the info isn`t as clear as on this one) that when/if I return to Oz for good, officials will bail me up and ask me for evidence I`ve been paying tax in Japan for the time I`ve lived and worked there. If I can`t give them the tax statements etc they can then ask me to pay tax on the income I`ve had for all the time I`ve been in Japan.
Is this TRUE or NOT? Sorry about caps but it`s worrying me. One of the schools I worked at was slack and never gave me a tax statement (only worked there for one year) and last year I sent my tax return by mail to the tax office and never got my tax certificates from different employers back. So, can any experienced Aussies help me? Thanks mates.
