Furusato nozei is Japanese system which allows you to pay your tax in advance to cities you choose in exchange for gifts.
IF YOU LIVE AND WORK IN JAPAN, YOU ARE STRONGLY RECCOMENDED TO USE FURSATO NOZEI SCHEMA because you can get some gifts (e.g. rices, water, meats, vegetables... and so on)from cities
But of course there are some budget limits you can pay your residence tax to some cities.
For example, if you earn 5 million yen per year, you can pay your residence tax 61,000 yen. See below Table. First column means your income per year. Second~Seven columns show your conditions. (second column means Single, third column means you have wife/husband)
When you pay taxes using Furusato nozei Schema,
Meaning, you pay a part of Next Year your residence tax (Juminzei) in advance, then you get some gifts from the government you paid
Therefore, we can recommend Furusato nozei scheme people who still live in Japan (and work) in 2021 also. If you are planning to leave Japan in 2021 or not sure, we do not recommend you pay FULL tax to some cities (but recommend you pay some tax...)
My recommendation is below:
- Rakuten Furusato nozei (if you have Rakuten Card, better because You also get Rakuten Point, which can be used for Rakuten Shop, Rakuten Denki, and so on)
from below banner, you can go to Rakuten Furusato Nozei site and search the gifts you want
