It's a wise man who pays his taxes.


Explanation:
This is a slogan, appearing on the official website of Direktorat Jenderal Pajak. It is reportedly a successful initiative of the Taxation Directorate, introduced in the 1980's. (It's also a joke, as indicated in the second example sentence below.) The tax people are flattering those who pay their taxes by calling them 'orang bijak' because there's a big problem of tax avoidance and non-payment of taxes.

Example sentence(s):
  • Slogan atau motto “Orang Bijak Taat Pajak” yang membahana pada akhir dasawarsa 80-an adalah contoh sukses Direktorat Jenderal Pajak menggenjot penerimaan negara dari pajak.
  • ... apa tuh slogannya kantor pajak? Orang bijak taat pajak? Kalau gw sih punya slogan sendiri seperti ini: Orang Bijak Taat Pajak, [tapi] Orang Cerdik Tidak Punya NPWP, [dan] Orang Beruntung Tidak Tertangkap Walaupun Tidak Punya NPWP ;-)
