Tax-Non Resident to Resident Clearing

Post by benscolum » Fri, 31 Aug 2012 11:24 pm

Hi, wondering if anyone can help me with a question

I started work here in October 2011 and finish today, moving back to USA.
I paid taxes in April as a non-resident (less than 183 days, 15% flat rate). My final month's salary is withheld for tax clearing.
As I am now a tax resident, can the "extra" tax I paid in April be deducted from my final tax bill?

Thanks

It will automatically be recomputed when the IR021 is filed by the employer. You shouldn't need to do anything at all.

That's right, the IRAS here are actually very good at this kind of thing, it's one thing about Singapore I really really like, the efficiency and flexibility of the tax folk. (and the low tax payments that we make ;) )
