Sakai City Tax Facts

In Japan, taxes can be classified into national taxes and local taxes, which are respectively paid to the national government and to your residing prefecture and city.

Local taxes are as follows.

Municipal Inhabitants Tax

You need to pay your Municipal Inhabitants Tax to the municipality where you reside as of January 1 each year. It is calculated based on your previous year's income and includes City Tax and Prefectural Tax. Please declare your income and deductible expenses by March 15 every year at the designated declaration venue set up at a ward office. You don’t have to do so if your employer submits your “Salary Payment Report” (kyuyo shiharai hokokusho 給与支払報告書) or if you file your tax return (kakuteishinkoku 確定申告) at the tax office (zeimusho 税務署).

Fixed Property Tax・City Planning Tax

Fixed property tax is collected from the owners of land, a house and other depreciable assets in the city as of 1 January each year.

Light Vehicle Tax

Light vehicle tax is collected from the owner of motorbike or light motor vehicle (four-wheel and up to 660cc) as of April 1 each year.
