We hope you’re diligent in paying your taxes, lest you disappoint Soleh, the latest honorary staff addition to the Serpong Tax Office in South Tangerang, Banten.

The Indonesian Tax Directorate General yesterday introduced Soleh to the public on Twitter, saying how the feline found a home at the office after capturing the hearts of people who work there.

“He came as a kitten, and the tax office employees fell in love with Soleh at first sight,” the tweet above reads.

“Soleh was eventually accepted as an employee at the Serpong Tax Office.”

Soleh is somewhat of a boss with paws at the tax office, given that he has the all-important task of lifting the spirits of not only his colleagues, but also members of the public.

In return, Soleh gets a steady supply of food, as well as benefits such as free neutering and vaccination.

Doubt his cred? Well, here he is with an official tax office ID card.

Should you find yourself at the Serpong Tax Office, be sure to say hello to Soleh! We’re told he’s really friendly.
