A radical deputy considers that “the impossibility of returning on the scheduled dates will have a high cost” and considered that it is a fair measure
The national deputy Gustavo Menna (UCR-Chubut) presented a project to exempt from the PAIS tax the Argentines who will not be able to return to Argentina due to the suspension of flights ordered through a decree by the national government in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
As Menna explained, “the impossibility of returning on the scheduled dates will have a high cost” and considered that “it is entirely fair that the State contributes by not charging 30% for purchases made with cards and cash withdrawals.”
This week, in the framework of a meeting that they held with the Minister of Tourism and Sports of the Nation, Matías Lammens, representatives of the Argentine Federation of Associations of Travel and Tourism Companies (Faevyt) asked the Executive Power to suspend 90 days from the application of that tax.
Now added to this request is this parliamentary initiative that proposes to exempt from the tax for an Inclusive and Solidarity Argentina (PAIS) “human persons residing in the Argentine Republic who are temporarily traveling in some of the countries listed in the Article 4 of Decree 260/2020 – and to those who may eventually be added to said payroll “.
According to the initiative, the exemption provided by the project “will be effective from March 12, 2020 and will persist until the temporary suspension of flights provided by article 9 of decree 260/2020 ceases,” he stated in the fundamentals. of the project.
