Regarding taxes, for the first 6 months you will have to pay 18%. This will be deducted from your salary by the school. Starting from the 7th month you will only have to pay 5%. If in that year you have stay for longer than 183 days in Taiwan, you can get a tax refund of 13% for the first 6 months. This is a cycle that repeats every year starting from January.


Regarding health insurance, you will be enrolled into the National Health Insurance and Labor Insurance. For these, you'll have to pay a small percentage yourself, about 60 USD per month, the rest is paid by your employer.
