The government leader in the Chamber, deputy Ricardo Barros (PP-PR), stated that it is negotiating with the President of the House, Deputy Rodrigo Maia (DEM-RJ), to approve the tax typesl (known as 1 new CMPF). According to him, one of the possibilities is to create the tax for a 6-year transition period.
“We are working with President Rodrigo Maia to make this tax for a 6-year transition period“, Declared Barros. This proposal had not yet been presented by Bolsonaro’s economic team. Speech was made last Thursday (17.set.2020), in a live broadcast made by Great Investment.
In July, Maia stated that “there is no room for creating new taxes, including a new CPMF“. For him, the Brazilian tax burden is already too high and society would not admit new taxes. “We need to approve a simpler, more transparent system and charge the State for providing better quality services”, said.
Barros said that the government believes that this new tax will be fairer. “We are also doing a study to show that this tax is fairer than the payroll tax. It takes elements of convincing so that he (Maia) can change his position ”, he declared. According to him, the tax will be used to finance the payroll tax exemption.
“New tax or digital transaction tax or whatever the name will be given is to finance the payroll tax exemption. It is the desire of President Bolsonaro to relieve the payroll“, said.
