You do not indicate in which country you do work and get paid, so I will assume it is China, and you are a "laoway".

If you make more than the minimum required for tax return, you must file a Chinese Tax return and pay local taxes. If you do not, they will catch you when leaving China, they will see your work visa and ask you for the Certificate that you have paid taxes on your income.

Also, you must check with your home country and their tax laws, wages earned abroad are taxable in USA for example.

A:I mainly got new (English teaching) jobs in China from here. I also used several good job recruiters and I got new offers that way, too.The other (ET) jobs website is Dave's ESL Cafe, and if you'll Yahoo-gle "ESL job vacancies in China", you'll find more websites advertising ET job openings in China. You can replace 'ESL' with any job you're looking for ... Many reasons why no replies from job advertisers ... Chinese borders remain closed as one. Nobody will hire you, if you can't enter China. The other thing here is (was from 2009 - 2017), never stop sending your CV until you get an interview invitation ... In my time, I usually spoke to at least two schools in the same time and then I picked and signed the best contract .. Good luck! -- icnif77
