The East Jakarta administration has confirmed that the management of Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII) cultural park has paid some of its tax arrears.
East Jakarta Tax and Levy Agency head Johari told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday that TMII's management had paid its urban and rural land and building tax arrears at Rp 1.56 billion (US$108,370) on Tuesday.
Johari said TMII's management had tax due since 1998, but the tax paid on Tuesday was for part of what was due in 2012. “Because they [TMII's management] said they did not receive the tax bill sent to them before 2012,” he said.
Before 2013, the tax was collected by the Finance Ministry's Taxation Directorate General. In 2013, the task was delegated to regional tax offices, Johari added.
Johari said he appreciated TMII management's step and would wait for an update on the remaining unpaid taxes.
With the tax paid, the East Jakarta tax office had removed three signposts and stickers about tax delinquency that were installed at three spots in TMII, namely at Snowbay Waterpark, Skylift and Tourist Village. (sau)
