As an addendum to my post #17 above, the property purchased by the WNI should be declared by them as an asset on their tax filing IF they have or can get an NPWP. Many tax offices will not issue an NPWP to anyone, WNA or WNI, if they do not have income to report. In our case, my wife tried to get an NPWP and was refused because she doesn't work or have income to report, even though the tax office clearly understood that she owns real property and a car. Welcome to Indonesia!
Yep...this is so bizzare...why make it so hard to get NPWP? There is literally almost no cost to them beyond printing out a plastic card, and potentially a lot to gain from tax income...
