16:40:09 # Life Tax related software. Tax related work in Japan is defined to be exclusive for licensed Tax Accountants. I wondered what it means for Tax related software and I was uncomfortable what it means to make one, or even if was elibible for a fine. I've looked up and the national tax agency had a FAQ entry. 2 非税理士により行うことが禁止される税理士業務 which stated that making and selling software for tax filing is allowed for non-Tax Accountants. So if they say so, maybe it's safe for me to write and distribute tax related software. One caveat is that tax related software is only applicable in individual countries but since it's something I care about and use every year, it's probably ok.
