Starting from Thursday next week, the 20 percent lottery tax would no longer be collected from the NT$4,000 cash prize for the Unified Invoice Lottery, the Ministry of Finance announced yesterday.
However, the tax would still be collected from prizes of NT$10,000 and above, it said.
Prizes of NT$200 and NT$1,000 are already exempt.
Also, starting with yesterday’s draw for receipts from September and last month, a special prize of NT$500 has been added for digital receipts as part of efforts to promote the government’s electronic receipt service, the ministry said. [FULL STORY]
