2 thoughts on “Accidental Expatriate

  1. Hi,I am from malaysia, of less than 183days wknoirg in Vietnam. My net income is 4000usd, my housing allowance is paid for by the vietnam company. But upon finding out that housing accommodation has certain rate level for each salary level, I transferred to a better place equivalent to the amount of rent indicated to my level of salary. But upon receiving my next salary, housing tax was deducted from my net income. I read in the above article that housing allowance paid by the company for the expatriate employee shall not be eligible for refund or deduction. Not refund or deduction What is the proper manner of this condition? Is the housing tax included or excluded from the housing accommodation and is part of the personal income tax? Please enlighten my knowledge regarding this matter. Very truly yours, joytolentino
