Income gives up to 70% discount on debt rescheduling

The Federal Tax Service has included new tax debts in the list of those that can be reviewed under exceptional conditions. According to the decree, published last Friday, December 12, discounts for taxpayers can reach 70%.

According to the agency, debts worth about 1.4 trillion reais could be revised. The number includes new terms included in the so-called tax deal, a device that empowers the government to offer more favorable terms for debt repayments.

Prior to this, membership was only available to those with small debts or debts associated with significant legal disputes. This range now also includes amounts of administrative disputes, liabilities at the stage of filing a claim with the tax office, and debts targeted by the tax authorities that have not yet reached the appeal stage.

The percentage of the discount depends on the solvency of the taxpayer and the terms of negotiations, but does not reduce the principal amount of the loan.

Diesel backlog is reduced to 6%

Petrobras announced a price adjustment for diesel fuel sold at its refineries by more than 4%, from 5.41 to 5.19 reais per liter. The new cut, the second in seven days, cuts the fuel gap from 17% to 6%.

Last week, the state-owned company reduced the price of a liter by 3.56%. With two adjustments, the drop reaches 0.42 reais per liter from 5 August.

Gasoline is about 9% behind, even with a 0.35 reais cut in the last two weeks.

The adjustments promoted by Petrobras are the result of a decline in the price of a barrel of oil, as well as an appreciation in the exchange rate. In addition, the government is using a strategy to curb inflation in the run-up to the presidential election.
