Abstract:As part of its comprehensive 1984 tax reform, the government of Indonesia undertook a radical overhaul of the property tax system. The reform was carried out in two stages. The first entailed a major revision of the legal structure during which seven land-related taxes were replaced with a single Land and Building Tax in 1986. The second stage involved a major restructuring of the tax administration and its procedures. In addition to reorganising the tax department, the government adopted a collection-led implementation strategy for its reform activities and introduced a number of innovative procedures for property tax collection and enforcement, property information collection and management, and property valuation and assessment. This paper provides an analysis of that reform effort.
