Proposed US$30 departure tax stokes tourism sector woes

Santo Domingo.- The Internal Taxes Agency on Wednesday proposed to increase the departure tax at ports and airports from US$20, to US$30, levied on all travelers, national or foreign.

For the tourism sector the request to raise the tax feels like a bucket of cold water, who say the increase would add to the already spiraling cost of airfare.

Although the proposal top the Executive Branch had included the elimination of the US$10 tax of the tourist card to fuse it with the $ 20 departure tax in the case of foreigners, the draft of the bill cites only the US$30, without distinction.
