Directorate General of Taxation (DGT) decided to extend the reporting deadline Annual Individual Income Tax Return (SPT Orang Pribadi) on this year. As is known, the latest submission for individual income tax returns dates every March 31. However, this year, will be extended for 21 days.
“Latest (submission) on 21 April 2017,” said Director of Services and Counseling (P2) Public Relations Directorate General of Taxation, Hestu Yoga Saksama during press conference, Wednesday (29/3/2017).
The decision was taken due to SPT Orang Pribadi reporting deadline to coincide with the deadline of tax amnesty program that ended on March 31, 2017.
Advisor to the Minister of Finance Sector Tax Compliance Suryo Utomo said the decision to extend the reporting of SPT Orang Pribadi also intended to provide the opportunity for taxpayers to follow tax amnesty.
By this extension, the Ministry of Finance expects the taxpayer can take advantage of the time to report the SPT carefully. In addition, taxpayers who participate tax amnesty could report his property into a treasure in SPT 2016.
Until yesterday, the taxpayer had reported new SPT counted 7.2 million taxpayers. This figure is lower than the number of SPT report at the end of March 2016 were able to reach 8.6 million taxpayers.
It is estimated that, by the end of March 2017 there will be 2-3 million taxpayers who will report the SPT. (translated RP)
