"외국인 주민세 체납 작년96천만원…전남 징수율 최저"

"Foreigners Residence Tax delinquency of 960 million won last year, Jeonnam Collection Rate the lowest"


It was discovered that more than a third of last year's Foreigners Residence Taxes were delinquent, totalling some 960 million won.


This is according to the National Assembly's audit records disclosed on the 26thby Lee HyungSeok(이형석), a member of Parliament representing Gwangju’s Bukgu(북구) Eul() Constituency.


The domestic foreigners' average individual residence tax payment rate was recorded at 56.5% for the last 5 years.


Last year's collection rate was at 64.1% to record slightly higher than the 5 years average. However, the delinquent taxes totaled some 966 million won.


Among 17 Metropolitan Cities and Provinces within the country, Incheon(인천) City recorded the highest tax-paying rate with 84% whereas Jeonnam region recorded the lowest rate with 52.1%.


Regarding such a phenomenon, Lee analyzed that the low tax-paying rate is due to the 'low awareness' by the tax-payers that 'they don't know' their obligation to pay.
