The Japanese National Health Insurance (NHI) Tax revenue plays an essential role in covering the medical bills of NHI holders.

Who is required to pay the NHI tax?

Any household with a member (or members) enrolled in Japanese National Health Insurance. The NHI tax is to be paid by the designated “householder”(setainushi).

Even if the householder is not enrolled in NHI, they must pay on behalf of other members of their household who are.

A householder paying the NHI tax on behalf of other household members is called a “constructive householder” (gisei setainushi).

Your NHI tax notice will be sent to the householder.
