Although she reminded that if the problem has any links to the rule of law, then it could not be solved during a short period of time because it would need to revise the income tax law.

In a separate occasion, the director of Counseling, Services, and Public Relations at the Directorate General of Taxation Hestu Yoga Saksama assured that every type of income that citizens receive must be taxed according to the existing law.

Regarding the unfair tax treatment, Hestu explained that taxpayers who work as writers with a gross income less than Rp4.8 billion annually are given the choice to calculate their net income.
