Will I get my tax money back?
« on: June 19, 2017, 11:51:06 PM »
So this is something that's been bugging me for a while.

As a South African, I'm supposed to be tax exempt for my first two years in Korea. Problem is, I need a residency certificate from the tax bureau back home. I knew this before I left for Korea last year (April 2016), so went and stood in a god awful queue at 6am to apply for one (the day before I was scheduled to leave for Korea). The idea was that I'd have it sent to my friend's house in SA, and she'd forward it to me in Korea. Well, surprise surprise, the damned thing never arrived. The revenue service in South Africa (much like everything else) is bloody useless.

Anyway, I've had no choice but to be taxed this year (and last) for a grand total of about 2 million won.

Assuming I manage to get hold of this certificate thingy at some point in the future, do you think there's any hope of being refunded by the Korean government?

Thanks  :azn:

I turned in my tax exempt paperwork late so I had to pay taxes my first year. I got the money back the next year.

So you got refunded? This is good news. Thanks!

Email SARS and request an electronic copy.

I did that from her in Korea in my first year and they emailed it to me a few days later.
