Deputies of the National Assembly (AN) carry out a deployment throughout the country to publicize the Organic Law for the Coordination and Harmonization of the Tax Powers of States and Municipalities, approved last Tuesday by Parliament.
This Friday, the new Law reached the state of Miranda, where regional authorities participated in the presentation of the new instrument together with deputies Ramón Lobo and José Vielma Mora, members of the Permanent Commission of Economy, Finance and National Development of the AN.
The meeting – held at the Cecilio Acosta House of Culture in Los Teques – allowed mayors, legislators, councilors, public servants and directors of municipal agencies in the tax area to learn in depth about the structuring of the legal document, according to a press release.
Likewise, the parliamentarians carried out activities in the states of Falcón, Yaracuy and Aragua, to publicize the legal instrument.
Bring the new law to all
These actions comply with what was instructed by the president of the AN, Jorge Rodriguez this Tuesday after the approval of the Law, when he urged legislators to take it to the whole country so that “it can be discussed by everyone, so that it is known and implemented by the mayors and governors.”
“Let’s not allow a law of this importance to fall into the sack of the gray zone, of false news, lies, manipulations and quite the contrary, let’s give citizens this powerful instrument that protects them in a determined way”, Rodríguez said when urging the deputies to publicize the new norm.
It should be remembered that the legal instrument has 53 articles, as well as general provisions that will be addressed to later work with municipal and regional taxes.
Its objective is to establish the principles, parameters, tax rates and applicable rates. It seeks to promote the harmonious development of the national economy, to raise the quality of life of the population, generate jobs and high added value, in addition to strengthening economic sovereignty and the optimization and efficiency of state and municipal tax processes, to reduce tax evasion and avoidance.
