Hard to pay tax

Smart people (find it hard to) pay tax – a campaign slogan to encourage people to pay tax. Sign reads ‘Tax collection service’.

With the government pleading poverty over costly fuel subsidies and lower-than-expected tax revenues, critics say that the delegation of tax collection to regional governments, overlapping regulations on land and property (PBB) along with bureaucratic red tape and corruption make it difficult for many people to pay tax even if they want to.
