Taxes for 3.8 million vehicles still overdue Vehicles are stuck in traffic in Jl. Gatot Subroto, South Jakarta, on Oct. 13. (Antara/Rivan Awal Lingga)

The Jakarta Taxation and Retribution Agency (BPRD)  has recorded that the owners of 3.8 million vehicles in Jakarta are still behind in their vehicle tax payments.

The 3.8 million vehicles comprise 3.2 million motorcycles and 600,000 cars, said Jakarta Police traffic law enforcement division head Comr. Budiyanto said.

The situation, therefore, has urged BPRD to search vehicles, he said.

“The BPRD and the Jakarta Police traffic unit will cooperate in conducting a search on vehicles around Jakarta, which will take place in late April or early May,” he said as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com on Sunday.

The BPRD and the police hope to give the owners of the vehicles a lesson through the search, Budiyanto said.

Other relevant agencies such as the Jakarta Transportation Agency and the Jakarta Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) will also take part in the searches, he said. 

Under a bylaw implemented in 2015, vehicle tax is set at 2 percent of vehicle price. The second vehicle owned under the same name will be taxed 2.5 percent and so forth based on a progressive system.(dea/wit)
