Govt. to Scrap Electronics Luxury Sales Tax

The government has decided to abolish the luxury sales tax on 11 electronic products next month, an official said.

The decision came after a tariff team of the Finance Department and the Industry Department reached an agreement on tariff synchronization, Transport Equipment Industry Director General Budhi Dharmadi, said, according to an Antara report on Tuesday (23/10/07).

The luxury sales tax for some products will also be reduced, said Dharmadi.

Sales of electronic products in the country have continued to increase this year with 12 types of household electronic goods growing 12% in sales on average in the first nine months of the year, compared to the same period last year.

The highest increase in sales was recorded for air conditioners up 38% to 702,497 units, followed by washing machines up 29.34% to 676,421 units.

I think that is yet to be decided. The minister in charge is still reviewing the bids coming in from the Electronics companies. As soon as those negotiations are complete they will announce

What? Luxury tax on books? Oh yeah. You must have noticed how expensive even paperbacks are here. Education and self improvement are considered a luxury by the govt.

There's also a luxury tax on musical instruments and guitars although it hasn't seemed to prevent every luckless frigger from strumming one in my ear at every opportunity.
