Tax Becomes Symbol of Mutual Cooperation, Justice
Once the economy begins to recover, these tax incentives will be eliminated gradually. Furthermore, taxes will be increased again to finance the country\'s development programs.
JAKARTA, KOMPAS — The tax system in Indonesia has become a symbol of mutual cooperation as well as an instrument for achieving social justice. When the economy is sluggish, the government provides tax incentives to support the business world. The government will again push to grow tax revenues for development purposes once the business world has recovered.
"We know that since early 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic began, the State Budget has become an extraordinarily strategic and important instrument for dealing with the pandemic, protecting the community and restoring the economy," Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said at a ceremony held virtually on Wednesday (14/7/2021) to commemorate 2021 Tax Day.
