The DGT will check the information that 9 million hectares of oil palm land have not paid taxes

Regarding palm oil, there is different data information, we will definitely follow up on it

Jakarta ( – The Directorate General of Taxes (DJP), the Ministry of Finance will examine information about 9 million hectares of palm oil plantations that have not paid taxes.

“Regarding palm oil, there is different data, we will definitely follow up on it,” Director General of Taxes Suryo Utomo said in Jakarta, Thursday.

Suryo explained that the DGT would take a stand in accordance with the applicable protocol, starting with supervision through a Letter of Request for Explanation of Data and/or Information (SP2DK).

Then, if there is a request for clarification and Compliance Risk Management (CRM) is out, then the DGT will conduct an examination of the person concerned.

However, Suryo reminded that the management of oil palm land also has its own procedures. The manager of the oil palm land submits a Tax Object Notification Letter (SPOP) for Land and Building Tax (PBB), after which a new Tax Payable Notification Letter (SPPT) is issued.

Suryo said the SPPT would later be used to compare data on alleged unpaid debts with data owned by the DGT.

“If something is different, we will try to match the data with the SPPT data,” said Suryo.

On the same occasion, Director of Extensification and Assessment of DGT, Aim Nursalim, added that 9 million palm oil plantations that had not paid taxes were still in the process of matching, which began with the submission of SPPT. Only then will DGT compile the data and make clarifications.

“The difference of 9 million is what the BPKP (Financial and Development Supervisory Agency) has done on the results of the audit, we will compare them later. We are looking for this so that we can be more precise about how much the difference is, “explained Aim.

It is known that the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves) Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan revealed that there are 9 million hectares of oil palm land in Indonesia that have not paid taxes.

This can be seen from the results of the BPKP audit of the BPDKS (Palm Oil Plantation Fund Management Agency) report, that only 7.3 million hectares of land pay taxes out of a total of 16.8 million hectares.
