How much is that salary really worth? If you’re looking for work in Japan then you’d better know what a salary is really worth – at the end of the day how much do you end up with in your hands. With this is mind I had a look around today and found myself a Japanese income tax calculator. I wouldn’t take the results as gospel but if you’re looking for a good estimate it’s a good bet (I had a check around some other sites and generally the results were the same). For example it doesn’t take all factors such as age into exception and the municipal tax and health insurance payments will vary depending on where you live (this calculator is based on the rates of Tokyo’s Mitaka City).
