A tax agent is the person or company who handle all matters related to taxation on behalf of a taxpayer who does not have an address in Japan.

 Even if you are a non-resident of Japan, in some cases you need to pay Japanese taxes or might have a right to claim tax refunds.  In such circumstances  you need to appoint a tax agent.

      In addition,  you have an obligation to pay local property taxes.

 In the case where you will leave Japan but still have income from sources in Japan
