The rates change contingent on what salary bracket you fall in. In general, it can go from as low as 5% taxes to 45%.

At the moment I think China's income taxes are among the highest, possibly superseded by Japan.

To give you an idea in terms of numbers. About a year ago I was making 13,000 RMB. Post taxes, I had 11,300 RMB. I'm an expatriate, so I don't know if we get taxed more or less. I doubt there's a difference though.

all the taxes chinese people paying are within the purchase of each products itself.

When considered for the income tax, below is the breakup of the chart......It deducted 2000 RMB for chinese and 4800 RMB for Foreigners initially from the Taxable income and then the below calculation come into effect

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
