Filing tax return by internet in Japan

How to file tax return via internet in Japan?

There was a change of tax law of Japan. 

Until now, when a person submits Blue tax return, he can apply for income deduction of 650,000 yen.

However due to a change of law, the amount of income deduction is reduced to 550,000 yen.

If tax rate of your income tax is 30%, amount of your tax will increase by 30,000 yen.

On the other hand, if you apply for tax return by internet, you can still use income deduction of 650,000 yen.
