So, on the tax theme. How do you get a tax ID in Thailand? I searched online and found an article that said what was required was my passport and my lease agreement showing Id been in Thailand for 180 days out of the last 365. It then said to go to any revenue office to apply for a tax ID. Well, no problem with the passport and rental agreement, the problem came when I arrived at the revenue office and they didn't want the rental agreement they wanted my work permit. Then the woman wanted to speak to someone from the school, which I told her was impossible as the school has not reopened yet. Then I get told I can't get a tax ID, I have to go to the local government offices 10km away and get authority from them. Do ANY government departments here know their own rules and regulations?
So, any sensible suggestions as to how to get a tax ID (stress free) would be appreciated. I need one, apparently, for my proposed new school to process my visa and work permit change from my current school to the new one.
