Income Tax Filing Deadline


The deadline for filing income tax returns in Japan has passed.

Tax filing systems exist in countries around the world. Since the deadline for filing income tax returns varies from country to country, frequent overseas immigrants need to understand the tax payment system of the country in which they reside.

In Japan, the deadline for filing individual income tax returns is March 15.

The reason why the filing deadline is important is that there is a difference in fines between a tax return filed on time and one filed after the deadline.

Preparing an individual income tax return may take longer than expected, so it is important to prepare early and be ready to file.
