The North Jakarta administration has installed banners and signs at 80 properties, for which their owners reportedly owe the authorities land or building tax (PBB-P2).

“We have done the persuasive approach regarding the tax objects, but some of [their owners] still haven’t paid their taxes. Officials [on Tuesday] moved to the next approach by installing banners and signs,” said North Jakarta Mayor Husein Murad on Tuesday, as quoted by kompas.com

The tax arrears in the municipality amount to Rp 73.9 billion (US$5.4 million), with the delinquent tax payers spread across six districts, mostly in Tanjung Priok, where arrears total Rp 38 billion.

“It is our obligation to remind taxpayers who have yet to pay their dues and prepare to take firm action by installing banners or signs stating that they are in tax arrears,” said North Jakarta Tax and Levy Board head Carto.
