RI loses trillions in taxes from systemic corruption
The Jakarta Post
A survey found that Indonesia could lose half of its tax revenues from the rampant corruption plaguing the tax-collecting agency.
Jakarta-based think tank Perkumpulan Prakarsa said that for 2012, the potential losses in tax revenue could reach Rp 521 trillion (US$55.9 billion) or almost 50 percent of the total.
The government expects Rp 1,033 trillion in tax revenues this year.
