Governor to reveal names of delinquent luxury car taxpayers
The Jakarta Post
Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said he had received reports from the tax agency on delinquent luxury car taxpayers.
“We will announce [the names] later,” said Anies in Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, on Friday.
Anies said he was considering various methods to get car owners to pay their taxes.
According to the administration, there were about 1,700 luxury car tax evaders in the city as of August last year, with average outstanding taxes of about Rp 100 million (US$7,000).
Previously, the Jakarta Tax and Levy Board visited the homes of delinquent taxpayers and placed stickers on their cars to indicate that taxes had yet to be paid for the vehicles.
Anies said the move proved to be effective in getting car owners to pay up.
“We did it in November and December last year,” said Anies. (gis)
