Shonan Tax Office No. 157
A Trial about Income
Some people returned only a part of income tax, and then they return formal income tax after the deadline to avoid appearing their name on “The database for a person with high income” by Japan National Tax Agency. Because of this, there was a trial in Hiroshima prefecture in September 27.
This trial was that tax office had a taxpayer an additional taxation even though a taxpayer was willing to pay income tax and returned tax voluntarily.
Therefore, the trail was concluded as tax office canceled an additional taxation. The trial was that four people owned the land, and they transferred the land to a driving school for 1.2 billion yen.
One of them, Mr. A, had misgivings about appearing his name on "The database for a person with high income." He thought that a driving school's union was able to know Mr. A's income; furthermore, it would have had bad influence on the union hereafter for labor-management negotiations.
Thereupon, in March 13 Mr. A filed final income tax return, which did not mention about long-term transfer income tax, and then he was preparing to file correction final income tax return witch was included sold out land in April 20. However, another owner of land, Mr. B, misunderstood that if he filed final income tax return after March 15th, he would not appear his name on "The database for a person with high income." He, thus, filed final income tax return in March 25th, yet "The database for a person with high income" included people who filed final income tax return until March 31.
Consequently, Mr. B was on "The database for a person with high income" as first place of taxpayer in the prefecture. As a result, local tax office inquired other three people including Mr. A, and they eventually filed final income tax return in April 24.return to front page
