Overseas deputies call for Christmas gift limit to be increased

Deputies representing Dominicans living overseas have complained about the decision of the Customs Agency (DGA) to reduce the tax exemption limit on items which Dominicans living abroad bring into the country during the Christmas period from US$3,000 to US$1500. They have written to President Danilo Medina asking him to restore the exemption to the RD$3,000 total as it had been over the past five years.

Spokesmen for the group, José Morel, argued at a press conference, that Dominicans residing abroad contribute almost 5% to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and deserve to be treated well when they return to the country to see their loved ones.
