++ The Chamber of Deputies Finance Committee approved the initial draft for a new revenue bill.
1. The new draft bill sets sales tax at 16 percent (currently we pay 15%) throughout the country and 11 percent on the border (currently they pay 10%)
2. Meanwhile income tax rose to 30 percent and a tax on cash deposits was augmented to three percent for amounts higher than 15,000 pesos per month.
3. A new three percent tax was set on telecommunications services including fixed telephone service, Internet and cable television.
4. Beer tax rose to 26.5 percent from the current 25 percent and cigarette tax rose to 40 cents per pack. (Comment: Yeah, I know, many of you are thinking.. Pay more for beer! Pay more for your cigarettes.. Why live??!!!!! )
