Here's a Practical Way to Calculate Motorcycle Tax Fines

Paying motorized vehicle tax (PKB) is the obligation of all motorized vehicle users, both two-wheeled and four-wheeled. Unfortunately, because it is only done once a year, not a few people are actually late in carrying out their obligations. As a result, they are charged with paying motor tax fines.

Well, for those of you who feel late in paying taxes, this article will really help you in calculating the number of fees that need to be paid. Here's how to calculate it.


How to Calculate Motorcycle Tax Fines

Motor vehicle tax has been regulated in Law no. 28 of 2009 concerning Regional Taxes and Levies. In addition, a more complete discussion regarding the motor vehicle tax (PKB) is contained in articles 3 to 8 in which the motor vehicle tax calculation is attached.

Then, how much do you need to pay the motor tax fine? Basically, the amount that needs to be paid for motorbike tax penalties is influenced by several things, such as the type of vehicle and the length of arrears. If you are late paying taxes one day, you will usually be compensated, aka free of fines.

The calculation of motor tax fines refers to the calculation below.

  • The fine for the lateness of 2 days to 1 month is PKB X 25%

  • Late penalty of more than 2 months = PKB X 25% X 2/12 + SWDKLLJ fine

  • Fine for more than 3 months late = PKB X 25% X 3/12 + fine SWDKLLJ

  • Late penalty of more than 6 months = PKB X 25% X 12/12 + SWDKLLJ fine

  • Fine for overdue 1 year = PKB X 25% X 12/12 + fine SWDKLLJ

  • Fine for overdue 2 years = 2 X PKB X 25% X 12/12 + fine SWDKLLJ

  • Fine for overdue 3 years = 3 X PKB X 25% X 12/12 + SWDKLLJ fine


PKB = Motor Vehicle Tax

SWDKLLJ = Mandatory Contribution of Road Traffic Accident Funds

The amount of SWDKLLJ for motorbikes is IDR 32,000

If you are still confused with the calculations above, consider this one example.

For example, your motorcycle tax is IDR 327,000 and you have been late in paying taxes for two months. Then the calculation of the fine is as follows Rp327,000 x 25% x 2/12 + Rp32,000. The total fine for late payment of motorbike tax that you have to pay is IDR 45,625
