  • TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe National Police Traffic Corps (Korlantas) announced that it will not charge fines of unpaid motorized vehicle taxes during the coronavirus outbreak emergency. This will be valid until May 29, 2020.

    “During the extraordinary occurrence (KLB) of Covid-19, people who are late to pay taxes until May 29 will not be charged with fines,” said National Police Traffic Corps Head Insp. Gen. Istiono on Tuesday, March 31.

    Istiono claimed he had instructed staffers in the regional police to coordinate with the local Tax and Revenue Office (Dispenda) in each province. 

    “Since taxes are regulated by regional administrations, I ask them to establish coordination with Dispenda,” he said.

    In addition, the police officially closed both registration and extension application service of vehicle licenses starting March 31. The mobile vehicle registration facility is also stopped temporarily until the condition is improved.
