Motivation and Commitment as Influential Factors in a Taxation Department and the Way They Affect Employee Performance: A Survey Study in a Taxation Department in Indonesia
Saifuddin Chalim1, Fahmi Rizani2, *
Tax revenues in each country cannot be fully collected depending on the planned targets without good work, which is influenced by individual performance. This means that taxes collected at the Tax Department in Indonesia depend on worker performance as one of the main factors affecting the expansion of national revenue.
Just like in any other organisation, employee performance of Indonesia’s taxation unit is influenced by established standards, which determine the quality of work, completion of targets and of course instilling responsibility in employees who are required to demonstrate such values through the implementation of the predetermined work procedures and policies. This study is a survey which uses a descriptive method. The descriptive method involves the assessment of research variables, which aims to determine the relationship between such variables and their influence on the findings of the study.
The results revealed that motivation and commitment in the taxation department fall in the category of 'good enough', though without optimum performance. During verification, it was revealed that there is a positive and significant influence on performance which is partially influenced by commitment and motivation; however, competence was one of the other key factors.
