City Administration is about to revise private island ownership licensing in Seribu Islands. This is because many island owners are still paying lower tax, even have no building permit.
"I’m gonna fix the building permit and licensing that have not been processed "
" I’m gonna fix the building permit and licensing that have not been processed . By doing so, we’ll get the land and building acquisition levies (BPHTB) from all transaction. Since doing so far, we’ve got nothing, either tax or fee,” said Jakarta Governor, Basuki “Ahok” T Purnama at City Hall, Friday (10/30).
In addition, Ahok would also increase the taxable value of property (NJOP). It is based on the most expensive value on the mainland. "So, I have instructed where the tax should be based on the most expensive land in Jakarta," he expressed.
The BPHTB is not only at the sale and purchase of land, but also any acquisition of land and building.
