The Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta will remove the imposition of administrative sanctions for late payment of tax during the status of an emergency in the Capital City, as stipulated in DKI Jakarta Governor Regulation (Pergub) number 36 of 2020. This facility is provided as a relaxation given to taxpayers (WP) who are constrained to fulfill their obligations due to the 2019 Corona Virus Disease (Covid-19) pandemic.
The DKI Jakarta Provincial Government considers that the delay in fulfilling tax obligations during the pandemic is not a deliberate mistake. In the provision that comes into effect since 9 April 2020 it is stated that the revocation of administrative sanctions will be granted in a position to the taxpayers that pays the regional tax base during the range of 3 April to 29 May 2020.
Therefore, taxpayer does not need to submit an application to the government of DKI to get this facility. Elimination of sanctions will be done automatically on the local tax information system, together with the Regional revenue service (Badan Pendapatan Daerah) and Communications, Informatics and Statistics Agency of Jakarta Provincial Government.
This policy will be re-evaluated, based on the development of the Covid-19 countermeasure process and the evaluation results based on the results of the implementation of the abolition of administrative sanctions. Thus, if the Covid-19 pandemic emergency status is over, this policy will be adjusted.
