Common question and the answer

 The tax payment when we moved to other municipalities

We were transferred from Q Tsuzuki Ward  , but how does tax turn out?


Please pay tax levied in A Tsuzuki Ward   to Tsuzuki Ward  . For example, the system is such that the municipalities having address on January 1 perform taxation, the collection based on income in the last year as for city prefectural tax.

 Taxpayer of main items of taxation

 Person who has address as of city prefectural tax ..., January 1

 Land as of property tax ... January 1, owner (registration holder of a title deed) of house

 Owner of light motor vehicles as of light motor vehicles ..., April 1


 Junk cars of light motor vehicles

We had Q motorcycle stolen (it became unusable in accident).


At first A, please submit junk car notice to ward office. We are imposed on jo ranainikakawarazu, owner who ride motorcycle if there is not report. Please contact light motor vehicles tax (keijidosha-zei) person in charge for detailed procedure of junk car.


 Payment after time limit

Payment period of payment notice that Q payment period was appointed has passed.


As you may pay when A payment period passes, please contact person in charge.



Q notification book arrived, but arrearages have been caused while we left unattended. There was not telephone communication, but is it necessary to pay?


A arrearages are added from the next day of deadline of the delivery by rule of law. Because you are collected regardless of whether there is telephone communication, please pay whether you looked at notification book.


We pay separately

Though we kept Q division payment, reminder arrived. Arrearages seem to be caused, too.


It is established in the city tax regulations that we send within 30 days when deadline of the delivery passes as for A reminder and is not paid fully. Because it is legal requirement of disposition for failure to pay taxes, in the case of some payment, it is sent. As you are added even if we are paying arrearages in installments, please pay.
