There are different scales. The more you earn the higher % tax you pay. 

 

There is also a tax free allowance. Check out this online tax calculator for China.

It depends on your level on income, the location and he job you are doing. If it's a job in high tech stuffs, you might pay less taxes, for example.

 

To give you an example : R&D in bio tech, in Suzhou, in a startup, I was paid 23K RMB/months + perks like accomodation. I was taxed on the 23K only : 3.5K of income tax.

Just have a look at the link here below, it's very clearly explained and the system in 2015 is still the same:

Furthermore, mind that there's social welfare to be paid, part at employee charge and part at employer's charge, but for foreigners, not all the provinces implemented it.

For foreigners, quite often nothing... well, ok, they take the money OUT of your salary, and they call it 'tax', but quite often the tax department will never see a single mao of it!

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
