Tax refund on Unvested RSUs

Post by sanmao » Sun, 23 Jun 2024 3:18 am


Is there anyone who left Singapore and had to pay exit tax on the unvested RSUs due to deemed exercise rule? How did you apply for refund? Is there any guide?

I don’t have any personal experience with this, but I know others that have experienced this issue. I don’t believe it is an exit tax per se, but a withholding by your employer on behalf of IRAS to ensure taxes you owe get paid, and you get a refund on the difference. This is true for any income tax due the IRAS upon repatriation AFAIK.
