NIK Will Become TIN, What are the Benefits for Taxpayers? – The discourse on the integration of the Taxpayer Identification Number (NPWP) with the Population Identification Number (NIK) has finally been realized. The signing of the Cooperation Agreement on the Utilization of the Population Identification Number (NIK), Population Data, and Electronic Identity Card (KTP) in the services of the Directorate General of Taxes has been signed.

This aims to strengthen data integration between the Directorate General of Taxes (DGT) as the agency for distributing tax funds and the Directorate General of Civil Registration as an institution providing public services.

This data integration regulation between the DGT and the Directorate General of Dukcapil is regulated in the fulfillment of the mandate of Law Number 7 of 2021 concerning the Harmonization of Tax Regulations, namely the use of NIK as an NPWP identity card for every Indonesian citizen as a tax payment obligation.

This mandate will also increase convenience for Indonesian citizens who are taxpayers in accessing and knowing the latest information and obtaining tax services and supporting the one-data Indonesia movement.

Starting in 2023, this service is targeted to reach 100% usage so that data between citizens’ identities can be accessed in only one data document.

Not without reason, this integration is expected to increase the effectiveness of big data technology which can help many institutions in accessing the required public data.

Synergy between the two agencies is also needed to realize the one Indonesian data movement so as to avoid any double data or unregistered citizenship registration numbers and other data problems.

The integration of NIK and NPWP data is also stated in the mandate of PP Number 83 of 2021 regarding the Inclusion and Utilization of Population Identification Numbers and Taxpayer Numbers in Public Services, namely the obligation to include NIK or NPWP in public services as well as renewal and updating activities of population data and taxation databases.

On another occasion, the Central Statistics Agency has also launched the One Data Indonesia Program (SDI), which is a government program that aims to achieve Indonesian sovereignty in the form of national and transparent data.
