I have heard of the 183 day rule of 18% tax and from then it should drop to somewhere between 6-12%. Does this happen every year? Presuming I stay the full year, do I get a rebate for those 183 days? If so, when would the rebate arrive?
Does the housing allowance get taxed?
What other deductions should I expect?
I'm expecting to get about 75k a month including a 10k housing allowance.
Thanks in advance.

If you have official rent receipts, keep them. At least at the Taipei City tax office, you'll need them to claim rent as an expense.
