Second, through a live chat channel available on the website www.pajak.go.id on weekdays from 08.00-16.00. Third, through electronic mail or email with the address firstname.lastname@example.org. Fourth, individual taxpayers can use the M-Tax application.
Then, the fifth way is taxpayers can directly visit the Tax Office (KPP) or the Office for Tax Counseling, Consulting, and Services (KP2KP)
Meanwhile, corporate taxpayers have three services available to submit forgotten EFIN requests. Namely, through telephone 1.500.200 and live chat accessible on weekdays from 08.00-16.00 WIB and can directly visit the KPP or KP2KP registered on weekdays from 08.00-16.00 local time.
How to Access Forgotten EFIN Email
The following are the steps to use the forgotten EFIN service through the email channel for individual taxpayers. First, taxpayers can send a forgotten EFIN request to the email email@example.com using the registered individual taxpayer's email address, with the email subject: LUPA EFIN.
Then, in the body of the email, it must include the Taxpayer Identification Number (Tax ID Number), the taxpayer's name, registered address, registered email address, and registered telephone or mobile number.
In addition, taxpayers must also submit a statement or affirmation as follows: "I declare that I am a taxpayer who has the right to access the requested information. I am willing to bear legal consequences under applicable legal provisions if, in the future, I am proven not to be the party with the right.” (ASP/KEN)
