Q: How do you do this mythical tax claim when leaving China?

Yeah, yeah - laugh away.  But when leaving China how are you supposed to go about claiming back some of the taxes you've paid for years?  I mean I'd at least like a cookie.

Isn't it only tax refund for goods purchased, not salary earned in China ?

if you employer doesn't know what they're doing they might enroll you in the mandatory social insurance and housing fund for local hires, the later can be somewhat (not necessarily all) refunded when you quit your job.

 

Again, this doesn't apply to foreigners but I've seen foreigners get signed up for it by uneducated companies.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
