More and more Chinese taxpayers have chosen to pay their taxes online as the country advocates contactless tax payment as part of its efforts to improve the business environment and reduce the risk of virus transmission.
In the first 11 months of the year, nearly 90 percent of tax-related services were handled online, China’s tax authorities said on Tuesday.
After the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, China rolled out a list of 185 tax-related services that can be provided online such as tax declarations and payments, and tax reductions and exemption filings, said Han Guorong, an official with the State Taxation Administration.
Han said the proportion of tax-related services handled online continues to increase, with 92 percent and 82 percent of declaration-related and invoice-related services dealt with online, respectively.
