The President of the Dominican Council of Evangelical Unity (CODUE)Pastor Feliciano Lacen, ask to be clarified this new tax with which it is intended to aggravate the Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) covered by Law 122-05.
“We reject this new solid waste tax on NGOs because it would violate Law 122-05 on non-profit organizations that protects us and more than this, because it does not correspond to our nature.”
We recommend you read:
Pastor Feliciano Lacen mentioned Art. 50 of Law 122-05 where it says that “they will enjoy a general exemption from all taxes, taxes, rates, special contributions, of a national or municipal nature, current or future.”
Our organizations are not governed by Law 225-20 to which the DGII mentions. However, currently when the certification of the declarations is printed, the payment of the solid waste tax is added. We need to quickly clarify this particular.
