Aside from being a source of foreign exchange, the export of palm oil and its derivative products is also a source of government revenues, namely from palm oil export taxes (Figure). The accumulated government revenues from palm oil export taxes increased from Rp 4.2 trillion in 2007 to Rp 111.6 trillion in 2016.

The data clearly show that the Indonesian palm oil industry also contributes to government revenues. The value of government revenues in the form of palm oil export duty is still greater than the total value of subsidies received by food crop farmers and fishermen for the last five years.

Of course, apart from the export duty, like other economic sectors the palm oil industry is also a source of considerable government revenues from both the property and land taxes, value-added tax (VAT) and income tax. Unfortunately, detailed data cannot be displayed here.

Selain sebagai sumber devisa negara, ekspor minyak sawit dan produk turunannya juga merupakan sumber penerimaan pemerintah yakni dari bea keluar minyak sawit (Gambar). Secara akumulatif penerimaan pemerintah dari bea keluar minyak sawit meningkat dari Rp. 4,2 triliun (2007) menjadi Rp. 111,6 triliun (2016).

Data tersebut sangat jelas memperlihatkan bahwa industri minyak sawit Indonesia juga memberikan kontribusi pada penerimaan pemerintah. Nilai penerimaan pemerintah berupa bea keluar minyak sawit tersebut masih lebih besar dibandingkan dengan nilai akumulatif subsidi yang diterima petani tanaman pangan, peternak dan nelayan selama lima tahun terakhir.

Tentu selain dari bea keluar, sama seperti sektor-sektor ekonomi lainnya industri minyak sawit juga menjadi sumber penerimaan (pajak) pemerintah yang cukup besar baik dari PBB, PPN dan PPh. Sayangnya, data yang rinci belum dapat ditampilkan di sini.
