The Bali Directorate General of Taxation (DJP) has discarded 147,000 Tax Registration Numbers (NPWP) considered inactive.

As reported by Bisnis Bali, the head of the Bali Tax Office, Zulfikir Thahar, on Friday, August 23, 2012 said: “We have eliminated the NPWP that are no longer active or represent ‘garbage’ tax numbers.”

Thahar said there are a large number of people who hold NPWPs but who pay no taxes. The number of taxpayers currently required to file a tax report in 2012 totaled 459,185. The number of tax number that have been eliminated is some 147,000 thousand.

“The total number of NPWP we cleaned out via the national tax census program is around 30%. The effective number of taxpayers is now 312,000,” Thahar explained. While admitting the number of taxpayers removed from the tax rolls was sufficiently high, the Bali tax official said the clean out of unused tax numbers would not reduce the amount of tax collected by his office. Adding: “If we just leave these number it will have no meaning. The NPWP held by these taxpayers just represents a burden to my office. We are now involved in seeking potential taxpayers, not sorting through inactive taxpayers.”

The cleaning out of non-active tax registration numbers brings, according to Thahar, a number of positive benefits. The recorded percentage performance for tax compliance now reaches 65%.

The target for income tax collection this year is Rp. 4.9 trillion (US$526.9 million). Through the mid-point of 2012, the income tax collected stands at Rp. 2.9 trillion or 59% of the stated target..
