The taxes that the citizens pays are used for the benefit of society. Taxes must be paid within the given period. Most people contribute within the period, so it’s unfair to have people who don’t pay their taxes.
Therefore, the prefecture will carry out punishments based on the constitution for people who did not pay their provincial taxes despite having assets and income (in Japanese, these people are considered “tainousha”).
The prefecture has set the “Property Confiscation Inspection Months” for November and December, and the Tax Offices of 8 prefectures will carry out seizure disposal.
Assets such as salary, accounts recievable, savings and deposits, life insurance, financial securities, automobiles, real estate and many others are subject to seizure.
For “Automobile Seizure” a “Tire Lock” may be installed so that it can’t be moved. The seized automobiles, real estate, etc. will be sold at Internet public auction and will be used for taxes that are delinquent.
In addition, we may take a measure called “Search” to discover property and make seizure. The prefecture tax “seizure strengthening month” is for two months in November and December, but we also do seizure at any time even in other periods.
Those who have not paid their prefectural tax, please make sure to pay as soon as possible.
