Tax Appeal in Indonesia

Some of the important things related to the tax appeal process in Indonesia are as follows:

  • Taxpayers may file an appeal only to the tax court on the Decision Letter of Objection.

  • The Tax Court's decision is a special court decision within the state administrative court.

  • The appeal letter shall be submitted in writing in the Indonesian language with clear reasons no later than 3 (three) months after the Decision on Objection is received and attached with a copy of the Decision on Objection.

  • If requested by the Taxpayer for the purpose of filing an appeal, the Director-General of Taxes is required to provide written information on the matters that form the basis of the Decision Letter of Objection issued.

  • When a Taxpayer files an appeal, the period of payment of taxes on the amount of tax that has not been paid at the time of filing an objection, is deferred up to 1 (one) month from the date of issuance of the Decision on Appeal.

  • The amount of tax that has not been paid at the time of filing an appeal is not yet a tax payable until the decision on the appeal is issued.

  • In the event that the appeal application is rejected or partially granted, the Taxpayer is subject to a tax penalty of 100% (one hundred percent) of the total tax based on the Appeal Decision deducted with the tax payments that have been paid before filing the objection.
