SAT Pressure Improves; Control Has Become More Effective
Tax attorney Mario Barrera was interviewed by El Heraldo de México about how the Mexican Tax Administration Service (SAT) has been able to generate more income for the public coffers. According to SAT reports, for every peso invested in this activity, there was a recovery of 124.8 Mexican pesos. The SAT reports this increase is due to a change in taxpayer payment culture. They now choose to comply with their obligations at the designated time. However, Mr. Barrera says this shows how the SAT has turned to a more demanding position.
"The inspection has become more effective, but it is also because the authorities sometimes take aggressive positions, which is sometimes exacerbated, it can make taxpayers pay amounts unfairly," he said.
