Office workers in Japan don't file tax return because of year-end adjustment called Nenmatsu-Chosei. It is that their employer or company calculate and adjust an amount of tax which is deducted from their salary in October or December. Employer and company refund or collect a tax after it instead of Tax office. However, office workers whose income is over twenty million yen(about 200,000dollars) and office workers whose miscellaneous income is over twenty thousand yen(about 2,000dollars) must file tax return by themselves.

National Tax Administration Agency advertise tax return every year to spread it by Japanese celebrities or actress, Kyoko Hasegawa, Yukie Nakama, Nao Matsushita and more.
