Tax in Hefei
« on: February 25, 2013, 02:29:13 AM »

Hi everybody

I currently work in Shanghai as an academic manager and I've just accepted a job offer in Hefei.

I'm struggling to find out what the tax will be that I must pay here so I'm curious if anyone knows the tax bands?

Thanks for the help guys
