This could not be any worse, but things all went south when Covid-19 pandemic hit Indonesia in 2020.

In addition, this restriction has been limiting tax collection effort of tax bailiff. Online collection means such as using email blast or whatsapp blast and outbond call centre has yet to be implemented by DGT. Conversely, Batam Utara Tax Office has implemented online collection since this pandemic hits Indonesia for its benefits such as increase collection efficiency and ensuring tax bailiff safety.

It concludes that this new collection method can be an option for DGT in handling delinquent tax.
