In this activity, 255 taxpayers’ assets worth IDR 29.6 billion were confiscated.
In detail, the simultaneous confiscation activity throughout East Java this time was attended by 15 tax offices within the Regional Office of DGT East Java III and succeeded in confiscating 84 assets belonging to tax delinquents with a total value of IDR 7.15 billion. The assets include 6 land and building assets, 2 lands, 9 cars, 4 trucks, 16 two-wheeled vehicles, and 47 bank accounts owned by taxpayers or taxpayers. On the same occasion, 13 tax offices within the East Java I DGT Regional Office confiscated 80 assets owned by taxpayers with a value of IDR 16.22 billion.

Farid Bachtiar, Head of Regional Office of DGT East Java III, revealed that the simultaneous confiscation throughout East Java is the first confiscation activity carried out jointly by the three Regional Offices of DGT in East Java. Previously, each regional office conducted confiscation activities separately.
“Furthermore, if the taxpayer has not paid the tax debt, the DGT will carry out the auction process through the State Wealth and Auction Service Office (KPKNL) for movable and non-movable assets, while for account assets, overbooking will be carried out,” he said in a written statement, quoted by Tax Magazine on Friday (08/09).

He added that the confiscation activity is an act of controlling the goods of the taxpayer/taxpayer to be used as collateral to pay off the tax debt. Not only that, the confiscation activity also aims to provide understanding to the public regarding DGT’s right to control the assets of taxpayers in arrears. In this framework, DGT certainly still prioritizes persuasive and educational elements to the taxpayers concerned.
“Active collection actions such as asset confiscation are the last resort taken in the event that taxpayers still do not pay off their tax debts after various previous collection efforts, such as the submission of warning letters and forced letters,” Farid concluded.
