When updating or changing your residence status, it is often necessary to submit a "tax payment certificate".

Here, we will explain how to read the tax payment certificate and the meanings of the terms.

The "amount to be paid" is the amount of tax determined based on the income from one year ago.

The "amount paid" is the amount of tax that has been paid.

The "amount unpaid after the due date" is the amount of tax that has not been paid (not yet paid) even though the payment deadline has passed. If this amount is not zero, your residence status application may be denied.

The "amount unpaid before the due date" is the amount of tax that has not yet reached the payment deadline. Even if an amount is written here, it is not a problem because the payment deadline has not yet arrived.
