JAKARTA. The Directorate General of Taxes (DGT) has proposed simultaneous blocking of 2,126 taxpayer receivables files located in 15 banks. The step was taken by the DGT Regional Offices of East Java II and East Java I.
In the written statement, the DGT stated that the previous blocking step had been preceded by the issuance and submission of warning letters and forced letters. "However, the taxpayer has no good faith to settle the tax debt after the due date," said the DGT statement.
The DGT hopes that this blocking can create a deterrent effect for tax delinquents and taxpayers who have tax debts so that they can pay them immediately.
Therefore, this blocking activity aims to achieve the tax revenue target in 2023.
Meanwhile, DGT ensures that this blocking step is in accordance with the applicable provisions, as regulated in Law Number 19 Year 1997 which has been amended by Law Number 19 Year 2000.
The blocking activity starts from immediate and simultaneous billing and forced letters as regulated in more detail in the Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) Number 61 of 2023 concerning Procedures for the Collection of Outstanding Tax Amounts. (ASP/KEN)
