Q: What tax deductions are allowable?

Naturally, my university wants to dip into my pay. I also know, I'm allowed up to 4800 in deductions every month.

I know about rent - but what else?? Taxis? Dinners?? Etc...??? Everything I've read is vague.

I really need deductions that my work CAN'T refuse.

(Yes, I know I need fapiaos!)

Actually, there are no real deductions.  Well, there are some special cases involving home mortgages and some things like that which probably don't apply.

If your contract allows for certain expenses that can be recouped by turning in a fapiao, then that is one thing you can do.  (This is VERY common for people to do here.)  If your contract doesn't allow for expenses to be reimbursed, then all the fapiaos in the world will do you no good.

But, remember TIC (This is China), they can and most likely will refuse anything they don't like.  Regardless of whether they legally can or not.

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
