Telecoms ask Medina to repeal the 10% tax levied since 2004
Santo Domingo.- Executives of the country’s major telecoms went Monday to the National Palace to ask the government’s repeal the 10% temporary tax on their services levied since 2004.
Executives of Orange Dominicana and Claro met with President Danilo Medina and made the request, noting that while the present might not be the right moment, the government can do so gradually.
Orange vice president Eduardo Valcarcel told reporters that telecom services customers are the ones bearing the brunt of the 30% tax.
As to the planned tax to install the 911 emergency call system, Valcarcel said the government has to find another alternative because the telecom sector can’t withstand more levies.
