PPATK: Massive Carbon Tax May Lead to State Revenue Leakage

31 March 2022 15:54 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaHead of the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) Ivan Yustivandana said the massive implementation of the carbon tax in Indonesia potentially leads to leakage of state revenues.

“This can lead to potential leakage of state revenues … committed by individuals and business actors,” Ivan said in a YouTube broadcast on Thursday, March 30.

According to him, there are a number of violations that may occur in the implementation of the carbon tax, including tax evasion, tax fraud, corruption, and money laundering.

This is considered a global phenomenon. In accordance with the study conducted by the Anticorruption Resource Center in 2021, corruption in carbon taxes could reduce the imposition of carbon taxes from business actors.

“So it may hinder the government to achieve the carbon net sink target. Corruption and criminal acts in the taxation sector are basic crimes of money laundering,” Ivan added.

PPATK thus opined that the government’s anti-money laundering efforts and preventive measures against terrorism financing are necessary to oversee the implementation of a carbon tax that is accountable, transparent, and ethical.
