Groups challenge tax breaks for shipped goods less than US$200
Santo Domingo.- 21 business associations on Sunday warned they’ll seek enforcement of the Constitution’s principle of fairness and equality when it comes to taxes on commerce and industries.
In letter to president Danilo Medina, the business groups asked that retailers and industries not established in the Dominican Republic and carry out sales via express shipping, be subjected to the same rules and conditions as those legally registered locally.
“In the case of tax exemption granted by Decree 402-05 to the import of goods through express shipping on amounts less than 200 dollars, the business sector’s position is that to maintain this exemption, far from contributing to fairness and transparency, legitimates and fosters informality and unfair competition,” the association said in a statement.
