I feel taxes for warteg, is less precise. Food prices in warteg very cheap, and affordable. If taxed, would be many buyers, who objected. Because the price will definitely go up.

it is not only the price will arise, but many warteg will close their store. and the economy will tend to down again. off course there would be another poor family

Hi Ifa!. I think in situation like now, where every thing expensive its not wise to take a tax from small business like thats. I mean we all know how tax can be played and if they work with fair the tax from current source its more than enough. I mean look what gayus got from several company as bribe money and can you imagine how much tax they should pay if the bribe money thats big. They just not do their job really well and make situation more hard from small business like that.

I think there is no difference between warteg and restaurants,they both sell foods. And certainly, warteg tax collection aims to increase local revenues in jakarta. Thats make sense for me. But i am not sure these programs will free from "pungli". Its very likely to be a new land for corruption practice.

but warteg is for low economy consumer, while restaurants tend to middle and up economic level. i don't think it would work if the government get the taxes from them.
