Hey! Here's an idea. Try google. Type in 'Singapore personal income tax'. Then type in 'Hong Kong personal income tax'.

Do you think the people here should be doing your research for you?

If you googled it, then you should already know the answers and the tax rates. You could at least demonstrate the knowledge you gained from google by asking a question such as, "My reading says that HK has an overall lower tax rate for salaries under US$ 100,000 in Singapore. Have I got this correct?"

HK tax is lower but HK is more expensive. I've lived in both cities and saved more in Singapore.
