On why Taemin was chosen as an exemplary taxpayer, a government representative stated, “Taemin has gained popularity around the world for his outstanding singing ability and performances, which has contributed to the development of popular culture. He has also regularly carried out social activities such as participating in donation campaigns. He therefore has a positive influence.” They said, “He is also diligently fulfilling his tax obligations.” Comedian Jo Se Ho also received a commendation after diligently paying his taxes and often taking part in acts of sharing.
People who are named exemplary taxpayers have access to benefits including the extension of payment deadlines, postponement of tax investigations during a grace period, the use of an exclusive business center at the Incheon International Airport, discounts on rail fare, and more.
