Government Is Asked to Make Tax Collection More Efficient
Tax attorney Miguel Ángel Rosas spoke with Reforma about the status of the Mexican economy and the implications for states' incomes. The rating agency Moody's Local Mexico published an analysis where it estimates that the growth of the country's economy will be less than what was expected by the Treasury Department. Therefore, the country will have fewer federal resources that could be dedicated to the states. Mr. Rosas considered that it is necessary for the government to have a more efficient tax collection to compensate for the country's decreased income.
"While federal entities with fewer tax collection begin a period of structural transition to modify, it would be very good if they receive financial support for it and that the federal authorities also seek to help them collect," he said.
