Gov't starts accepting income tax returns
The government on Monday officially started accepting income tax returns nationwide. Anyone filing an income tax return must do so by March 15.
As in previous years, the National Tax Agency is encouraging people to file their tax returns online. Helping to promote e-tax applications on Monday morning were actor Hideki Takahashi and his wife in Tokyo, and Olympic wrestling champion Saori Yoshida in Nagoya.
Consultation corners have been set up at tax offices to help people file their tax returns.
