BANDUNG - The West Java Provincial Government gives an appreciation to the West Java Regional Representative Council (DPRD), which has drafted a Regional Regulation (Raperda) on the Regional Regulation (Perda) of West Java Province No. 13 of 2011 concerning Regional Tax in the Plenary Room of the West Java Parliament on Friday (01/18).
According to the Vice Governor of West Java, Uu Ruzhanul Ulum, the West Java Parliament has understood the needs of the West Java Provincial Government in the implementation of regional government because the Regional Regulation that had been used for almost 17 years has not changed.
"First, I would like to thank the West Java Parliament for understanding our needs in the implementation of regional government, because the Regional Regulation that has been in place for almost 17 years, we know the value of the rupiah from year to year is like that," he said.
According to the Vice Governor, if the West Java Provincial Government does not increase or not change the tax, it will be left behind and also deterred in carrying out government activities, therefore this increase is needed, not for personal needs but for the West Java community because the tax will return to the community.
"We understand that they are struggling to be a member of the DPRD again and we also understand that the community must object to the increase in retribution. When they campaign to the area they will be asked by the community why the council approves this tax increase, but we need development because the tax will return again to the community, "he explained.
The Vice Governor stated, a 12 percent tax increase for new vehicles is very reasonable when compared to the previous one with today's rupiah value which continues to strengthen.
"The determination of the new tax rate is only for the Transfer of Motor Vehicle (BBNKB) 1 or new vehicles," said the Deputy Governor, at the West Java Parliament Building on Friday (01/18). (Parno)
