Ministry of Finance (Ministry of Finance) is studying the three types of goods that will be charged taxes. The three are rubber tires, fuel oil (BBM), and detergent.

Head of the Fiscal Policy Agency (BKF) of the Ministry of Finance, Febrio Nathan Kacaribu, explained that this was in line with the excise extensification policy that was being echoed by the government. In addition, also to limit the consumption of the three types of goods.

“In the context of controlling consumption in the future, it will continue to be studied, such as rubber tires, fuel, detergents,” he said in a working meeting of the DPR RI Budget Board, Monday (13/6).

However, the Director General of Customs and Excise at the Ministry of Finance, Askolani, said that the three types of goods being studied are subject to excise, which will not be implemented in the near future.

Currently, the study is still in the initial discussion stage. “Patience. It will not be charged yet,” said Askolani.

Previously, the Ministry of Finance was also in the middle of preparing to implement other excisable goods, such as plastics and sweetened drinks.

Discussions have been carried out since 2019, but there is no certainty when these two types of goods will be subject to excise duty.

For this year, the target for excise tax revenues is IDR 245 trillion in the 2022 State Budget (APBN). Until the end of April, the realization has reached IDR 108.4 trillion or 44.2 percent of the target.

The revenue from the Directorate General of Customs and Excise is mainly supported by tobacco product excise (CHT) or cigarette excise. However, because it cannot rely solely on excise on cigarettes, the government has begun to examine other goods that will be subject to excise.
