Tax Agency scrambles to avert shutdown by retailers
Santo Domingo.- The Internal Taxes Agency (DGII) and 13 retailers organizations Wednesday agreed to oppose the commercial strike called by the Dominican Retailers Federation (FDC), and chose to accept a tax credit to the sector’s contributors to break the gridlock over the cost to install tax receipt printers, to be deducted from their income tax over two years.
The DGII agreed not to penalize for failure to pay taxes since merchants have yet to obtain the printers from suppliers and will provided with a simpler way to process the tax payment.
But despite the agreement signed by the organisations, the FDC yesterday postponed the strike date from January 30 and 31, to February 5 and 6, leaving open the possibility to reach an agreement with the Government.
