**Prefectural Advisors are not tax experts: however we would like to offer the following explanation of Residency Tax and how it is calculated. For more information please refer to the JET Programme General Information Handbook. For country specific information, please contact the taxation authorities in your home country.
Once again, Prefectural Advisors are not tax experts and these figures are a very rough estimation of the Residency Tax bills that JETs participants can expect to receive in their first two years. Residency Tax bills will vary depending on individual circumstances, but this estimation is intended to give JETs an idea of how much to budget for.
