The Indonesia Ministry of Finance gives appreciation to Jakarta Provincial Government related the escalating of tax revenue in recent years by 40 percent.
Finance Minister, Chatib Basri, said nation tax revenue is increasing significantly in last few years. The increase started from 30 to 72 percent from gases and non gases sector.
"Jakarta provincial government successfully gained the tax revenue in recent years, especially under Jokowi`s command," Basri said at City Hall, Monday (3/17).
However, the escalation amount of tax revenue is far from target since many of tax sectors were not optimized well.
Those sectors are individual and organization tax payer of properties, land, and luxury car purchase. Basri added, tax revenue can not rely on agricultural and mining commodities as mainstay of tax revenue.
Basri needs more professional tax collector as he only has 33,000 collectors out of 66,000 collectors as it supposed to be.
