Khon Kaen tax office
« on: January 08, 2018, 08:09:11 PM »
I have been having intense discussion with my UK bank, HSBC, about where my tax residence is.  I maintain it's in the UK because that's where my sole income originates via two pensions and it's where I am taxed.   They insist my tax residence is here and were not amused when in that case I asked for all my UK tax payments to be refunded!

I have no income in Thailand and because of having a 'retirement'  visa I'm not allowed to earn anything anyway.

I'm 70 years old next week and long since retired but this time HSBC are getting really nasty about it.  They want a full written explanation (!)  and threaten me with the loss of my UK account which would be disastrous.

So, I may have to go to the Khon Kaen tax office and  get a number which I will never use, just to keep happy some HSBC pen-pusher with a streak of meglomania.  And I thought the Spanish Inquisition had been disbanded.

But where is the Khon Kaen tax office, any help please, and if possible, what do they want from me when I do go there.

Thanks very much,

There is a big, new, nice looking building on Lao Nadi road which might be it. About 2 miles outside the ring road on your left.


Good luck.

Unless it's moved, and I don't think it has, it's in the government complex East of the old regular bus station.
It's just East of the 'Airport School', (which is many kilometers East of the Airport).

The Revenue Office faces the main road.

It's been a long time, so I don't remember what info they wanted from me, but I'd guess it's the standard stuff like PP info, address and married status.  things that you might need for a tax return.
I remember them being very helpful, but you might take a Thai speaker with you.

My wife said it was in the complex that includes the Governor's Office building.  Seems like that puts it about where Terry said it was.


The one Lao Nadi Road is the Custom's Tax Office that includes cigarette and whiskey tax collection.

I plan to go early next week.  I'll report back for future reference.  Thanks to all.
