The Directorate General of Taxes (DGT) said, that based on the Annual Tax Return data that has been received, the number of taxpayers who have a maximum tax overpayment of IDR 100 million is 15,642 taxpayers.
For information, this restitution acceleration facility can only be utilized by taxpayers who have a maximum tax overpayment of IDR 100 million, as regulated in Director General of Taxes Regulation No. PER-5/PJ/2023.
In the regulation, the government also accelerated the restitution process from one year to only 15 working days.
In addition, the restitution process is also carried out in a less intervention and less face-to-face manner. The goal is to make the restitution process more accountable and avoid abuse of authority. (ASP)
