tax potential. So, the Indonesian government has a tre-
mendous errand min its program is establishing a credible
fiscal policy. Towards its fiscal policy, the government tries
to increase the nation revenue trough Tax Amnessty policy.

the literal meaning of Maslahah and trying to describe
the interest and benefits of Tax Amnesty in its sort and
long term. Therefore, the benefits may lead to the public

some lacks of Indonesia Tax Amnesty policy in its absence
of tracking source, as its one of incentives. So, it causes to
opposite of the Islamic Law to Al-Qur’an, which should
keep the own of wealth well. Furthermore, the existence of
