Surabaya, 18 October 2021 - Tokopedia and the Surabaya City Government are collaborating in providing digital access to public services through the online Land and Building Tax (PBB) payment feature at the Tokopedia Tax Counter.

With this, we want to make it easier for the public to access public services more comfortably, quickly and safely from the palm of their hands,” said Head of Public Policy and Regional Government Relations Tokopedia, Emmiryzan.
The Mayor of Surabaya, Eri Cahyadi, said, “We really appreciate Tokopedia for presenting the online PBB payment feature for Surabaya. In addition to making it easier to pay taxes anywhere and anytime, this effort is also expected to increase public awareness in paying taxes because taxes play a very important role in regional development.”
Ways to pay PBB via Tokopedia is very easy. People simply choose the city/district they want to pay, in this case Surabaya. After that, enter the payment number/tax object principal number/SPPT PBB in the provided page. Select last year's description, the rate value will appear as a PBB bill.
