Water Tax to PPB Will Increase, Jakarta Residents More Difficult to Have House

- The Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta is reviewing the increase of tax amount, one of which is ground water tax.The Governor of DKI Jakarta Anies Baswesan said the city government also highlighted the magnitude of the land and building tax (PBB).

The plan to increase taxes is inseparable from the Jakarta Provincial Government's target of raising tax revenues from Rp 36.125 trillion to Rp 38.125 trillion this year.

Chairman of the Center for Islamic Studies in Finance, Economics and Development (CISFED), Farouk Abdullah Alwyni, said the increase in UN levies will have medium-term and long-term impact on society.
Farouk sees the increase will have a negative impact on the purchasing power of Jakarta people because the allocation of funds that need to be spent increases in such a way.According Farouk, the most disadvantaged in this case is the middle class.No doubt, when people get older, their income is getting lower, the UN is even more expensive and suffocating.

"Here the country is not bringing the benefit of society even bring mudharat," his criticism, Sunday (27/05/2018).

The problem is that the UN is not only burdening the people of Jakarta but also the various cities in Indonesia general.

He said that before the UN should raise again in 2018, the new Governor of DKI Jakarta needs to review again the policy of UN increase that is not logical in 2014.

On the one hand Farouk appreciate the policy Governor Anies Baswedan has revoked 50% of UN discounts or discounts on golf courses.

Indeed, according to Farouk big discounts for golf courses is very disproportionate considering the party who enjoys the game of golf is a very capable people, whereas on the other hand it is very difficult for ordinary members of society to get a UN cut of 50% .

But on the other hand Farouk regretted that the Governor who displays the slogan "Forward the City, Happy People" instead of correcting the errors of a bombastic rise in the UN in 2014 instead actually raise the United Nations back in 2018.

"The urban middle class is the main victim of the UN continues to increase," said Farouk.
Farouk explains, higher UN levy imposes homeowners in the city (especially Central Jakarta area).Not to mention the Jakarta Municipal Agency for Tax and Retribution (BPRD) gives unethical stigma, by putting a big sign in front of houses that can not pay the UN.

"The consideration of increasing taxes due to a region is a commercial area is also doing a disproportionate generalization, because apart from the Thamrin and Sudirman areas, the increase in the UN impacts the surrounding region.In fact, the area around Thamrin and Sudirman's homes and commercial buildings are still mixed, "said the practitioners of Islamic finance.

He underlined, the drastic increase in taxes in 2014 and in proceed in 2018 is not only inhuman but also not rational and oppressive because it gives a very heavy burden to society in general.

It is also awkward to study the context of international taxation for the people of developed countries.Especially if in developed countries every increase in tax must be balanced by the improvement of public services and real infrastructure.

For the context of Indonesia as a developing country trying to be a developed country, UN overload is also not in accordance with the spirit of reform that wants to see better welfare for all members of the community. "The present condition is essentially not that it builds more middle class, but it can destroy the growing middle class," he said.

Farouk takes the example of taxation regulation in Los Angeles, USA, where the maximum increase in property tax (read the UN) is no more than 2% per annum as stated in Article 13A of the California Constitution.

In the state of New South Wales & Victoria, Australia, even the primary residence is not subject to property tax at all.In western Germany, the value of property taxation was in 1964 and even in the former East Germany the value used was the value of 1935.

Even in Holland the maximum increase in property taxes should not exceed inflation annually.

And also need to know that for the case in Los Angeles, Farouk added, tax imposition is based on the initial purchase value of a property.
Reappraisal occurs only if there is a sale and purchase with a third party, and itupun value must be approved by the tax payer.So the imposition of property tax does not have to follow changes in property prices that may occur in the next few years after purchase as applied in 2014 and 2018 in Jakarta.

Thus the property purchased for example 20 years ago will still use the valuation of the price at the time the property was purchased and not follow the growing market price.
"Adjustments are only made if the property is sold to a third party at a new market price.Well, the third party will then pay property tax based on the value of the new purchase, "he explained.

With the various economic burdens that exist, citizens of Jakarta is now increasingly difficult to have a home in his own homeland.Some even had to stay in the inheritance house.

The plan to increase tax levies in Jakarta, the burden that must be borne by the citizens of Jakarta will be more severe.

From the survey sentiment results of Business Intelligent Rumah123 team, although living in a house labeled its own, the dwelling is known to be obtained from family heritage.The remaining 36% are rented / rented / boarded out, and only 19.4% have homes by own or own money.

"Yes, the confession of living in their own home, but the house they get from the inheritance.They are not bought with their own money, "said Country General Manager Rumah123, Ignatius Untung.

The same applies to Bandung and Surabaya areas of which 56% and 47% of the residents occupy houses that are inherited or owned by a parent or an official house.The buffer zone of Jakarta, which includes Bogor, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi is quite the opposite, where most of the inhabitants occupy their own house or own money.

The low level of public awareness of the importance of owning their own home from an early age can also be seen from the income level also does not affect their ability to pay DP or down payment.
