Costa Rica News – A tax on legal persons is about to be revived but with a change, a rebate for those who are owners of societies or S.A.’s.
The inactive legal persons, those without income, will now pay just 15%, or about ¢64,000.
There is also a scale to slide payments based on annual incomes.
Those making under ¢51 million will pay 25%, between ¢51 million and ¢127,000 will pay 30%, and the rest 50%.
The Committee on Financial Affairs ruled on it with seven legislators in favor and two against.
The tax is meant to raise ¢47,146 million for the Ministry of Security, Ministry of Justice, Judicial Research and the General Fund of the State.
