View Full Version : Filing Canadian Taxes, NOT on JET

I know for Canadians on JET, you can quote Article 18 of the Canada/Japan tax treaty when you file your taxes and avoid double-taxation. And in a lot of cases, Japanese taxes are deducted by the BoE automatically and appear on your Statement of Earnings, making it easy to file.

But for Canadians working for eikaiwa or ALT dispatch companies, how should they file their taxes? Does the same tax treaty apply? If the Japanese taxes are not automatically deducted, what happens?

Depends who writes your paycheck - if its Interac, Aeon etc, then probably no - they aren't a State organization. If its a BoE or school, then probably yes - they're a public institution.

The Japanese income taxes are deducted automatically, but it's an ALT dispatch company like Interac/Borderlink/etc. -- so, does that mean income taxes will have to be paid to Canada too?
