Ideal time to rethink taxes


The simplification of the tax system and the burden on various sectors, such as fuels, one of the ones that most pay taxes in the country, were some of the topics of Correio Debate. Authorities, such as João Otávio de Noronha, president of the STJ and André Luiz Mendonça, attorney general of the Union, attended the meeting, which took place on 21/08/2019. ETCO's president, Edson Vismona, was also one of the speakers and spoke about the need to simplify the tax system, as one of the tools in the fight against stubborn tax debtors.

Jornal Correio Braziliense published the full coverage of the event in a special section and also on the website.
