  • What payment methods are available?

    All municipalities on MOGUFULL accept payments through the following credit cards and other methods: MasterCard, VISA, JCB, American Express, and Diners.
    *Only ‘one-time payment’ frequency is accepted for payments.

  • When can I expect the deducted money to be refunded?

    For income tax, you can receive a refund in as little as a few weeks, while for inhabitant tax, your payment will be reduced.
    If you have filed a 'final income tax return', the deduction will be subtracted from both your income tax and inhabitant tax. Since you've already paid the income tax portion, it will be reimbursed to the account you specify when filing your tax return (the transfer usually takes 2-3 weeks for electronic filing or around one to one and a half months otherwise).
    The amount of inhabitant tax isn't returned as a refund, but the Furusato tax payment amount is subtracted from the inhabitant tax due the following year. You'll receive a 'Resident Tax Determination Notice' around June of the following year after making the Furusato tax payment, enabling you to confirm the deducted Resident Tax.
    If you're using the One-Stop Special Exception System, no income tax refund will be issued, but the entire amount will be deducted from your inhabitant tax.
