East Japan Disaster Revival Tax



Everyone getting into the groove at work? I hope you are, I've found the more you abandon yourself to your job and focus on only it... the sooner it's over! Time flies when you're focused on something. Plus you've done a good job! It's a Win - Win situation.

 Today's blog comes from a very interesting question I was asked by one of our Educareer members. They asked about an increase made to our income taxes. Roughly it may come down to just a little over 500 yen extra taken from your paycheck. Let's read what a Japanese media outlet Weblio has to say.


"It is a temporary tax increase to support the stricken areas that suffered crushing damages from the Tohoku district Pacific off-shore earthquake (3/11 catastrophe) striking in March, 2011. This addition to income tax will be used to support revival to communities and individuals affected by the disasters."

The article goes on to mention future proposals on taxation for Energy Consumption. However, details on how the money will be used are sparse. So hopefully we can just trust the government to be fiscally responsible with our money. . . ...


Still, it is good to know that efforts are being made, and that we are a part of the solution. I think we all feel deep respect and gratitude for those of us who have volunteered their time and resources to assist those affected by this record-breaking tragedy. Let it be seen that there is goodness in humanity when we try to alleviate an others suffering.
