Courier Companies Association (ASODEC) seek an injunction against the Customs Agency’s decision to tax online purchases
Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Courier Companies Association (ASODEC) goes before the Administrative Superior Court (TSA) Monday to seek an injunction against the Customs Agency’s decision to tax online purchases lower than US$200, starting Friday.
It’s ASODEC’s first legal move against the tax, and one of several challenges announced for the coming days.
Last week ASODEC spokeswoman Laura Castellanos said the entity plans several moves against Customs’ “illegal” measure she affirms even violate the with US-Central America (Cafta-Dr) free trade agreement and estimates a jump on the price of online purchases as high as 38%.
The high Court will also hear Wednesday a challenge as unconstitutional filed by the Justice and Transparency Foundation (FJT), the Defense Dominican Consumers and Users Alliance (ASODECU) and the Dominican Chamber of Commerce.
