Tax probe on Google Indonesia
JAKARTA: Indonesia’s tax office will investigate Alphabet Inc’s Google for suspected unpaid taxes from billions of dollars worth of advertising revenue.
Muhammad Hanif, head of the special cases branch in the tax office, said Google’s refusal to cooperate after it was sent a letter in April requesting to be allowed to examine the company’s tax reports had raised suspicions. The probe would not be launched until the end of the month at the earliest.
PT Google Indonesia said it was complying. “We continue to cooperate fully with local authorities and pay all applicable taxes,” a spokesman said. – Reuters
