The Government is advised to seek the most appropriate solution to avoid any noise caused by the enforcement of Article 18 of the Tax Forgiveness Law.
Yustinus Prastowo Director of the Center for Indonesia Taxation Analysis (CITA) sees the middle way through an opportunity to fix the annual Tax Return or tax return or pay tax shortfalls without sanctions.
“This is what I still think the middle way, whether given the opportunity to fix the SPT and pay the tax shortage without sanctions,” Prastowo said Sunday (06/08/2017).
The middle road, said Prastowo, is needed as the alleged enforcement of Article 18 of Law No.11 of 2016 on Tax Amnesty will be excited because ignorance of the public and possibly politicized.
In addition, the government can actually provide a solution by copying the scheme in the Minister of Finance Regulation 91 / PMK.03 / 2015 which regulates the reduction or elimination of administrative sanctions for the delay in submitting SPT, SPT correction, and delay in tax payment.
“As long as that is removed only sanctions, but the principal remains to pay, perhaps the country benefited because more participants,” he said.
