Commission analyzes on Tuesday MP that discourages disputes with the tax authorities


The Joint Commission that analyzes the Provisional Measure 685 / 2015, which creates the Tax Litigation Reduction Program, has a meeting scheduled for 14:30 pm on Tuesday (27). Parliamentarians will evaluate the report by Senator Tasso Jereissati (PSDB-CE) on the government proposal that aims to reduce legal disputes between companies and the tax authorities. The MP has already received 215 amendments.

In addition to encouraging the debtor to give up administrative or judicial proceedings on tax debts, the provisional measure authorizes the Executive Branch to update rates administered by 11 federal fees, including the registration of firearms, health surveillance and inspection of civil aviation. According to the government, some of these rates have been uncorrected for 17 years.

In September, the commission made a public hearing on the topic, when some panelists suggested improvements to the program. The mixed commission is chaired by deputy Gabriel Guimarães (PT-MG). The vice is Senator Acir Gurgacz (PDT-RO).
