Jakarta, police to intensify door-to-door tax collection


Jakarta — The Jakarta administration is mulling over plans to go door-to-door to collect outstanding taxes from luxury car owners, according to an official. The program would be conducted in cooperation with the Jakarta Police’s traffic division, said Jakarta Regional Tax and Levy Agency (BPRD) head Edi Sumantri. “The media can cover the collection process; we will still [start the program] in early February,” he said on Wednesday (13/06). The administration is aiming to collect Rp 38.1 trillion (US$2.7 billion) in tax revenue this year, with vehicle tax as the biggest source of the targeted amount. The city recorded 1,293 cars with unpaid taxes by the end of 2017, despite the vehicles’ resale value of more than Rp 1 billion, Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has claimed. Anies said he was committed to keep pursuing the vehicle owners until they payed their outstanding taxes.
