VIVAnews - The Directorate General of Taxes will be seriously paying attention to oil palm companies, gold, sand and lead mining firms.

The company's reports in the sector will be audited by the Directorate General of Taxes due to negative tax collection from the sectors. "The examination toward the sectors will be seriously focused on in 2010," said Director General of Taxes, Mochammad Tjiptardjo, in Jakarta, yesterday, June 3.
