Lawmaker requests government to enforce capital-gains tax.

By bne IntelliNews November 18, 2010
Taiwan's lawmaker requested the government to enforce the collection of an existing 20% tax on foreign investors' capital gains from local investments, as part of the country's effort to control hot-money inflows. As reported by Dow Jones International News, the government has not been able to effectively collect capital gains taxes from foreign investors, because it was difficult to track fund movements once they enter the Taiwanese economy.
