DCA: File Taxes with CDC to Avoid Long Queues

In light of the approach of tax season, the Department of Civil Affairs (DCA) noted a significant rise in the number of Citizen Digital Certificate (CDC) applications. To facilitate the application process for acquiring the digital ID, the agency offers extended hours and additional service locations throughout the month of May.
According to the statistics from the Ministry of the Interior, Taipei City has issued a cumulative 864,028 CDCs as of April 16, 2015. This accounts for nearly one-fifth of the total number of CDCs issued across the nation as of the aforementioned date (4,520,108).
According to DCA Commissioner Lan Shih-tsung, the CDC offers convenient access to 28 major government service systems providing services in 2,117 categories. Examples include tax filing, uniform invoice comprehensive services, household registration, registration information for national exams, CyberCitizen services, and more.
Those applying for a CDC need to be at least 18 years old. To apply, the applicant should bring his or her National Identification Card, a functional email address, and NT$250 fee payment to any of the household registration offices in Taipei.
