Today’s resolution of the AFIP was published at a time when the definition of one of the key initiatives of the Minister of Economy is expected, Serge Massato try to reduce the difference between income and expenditure of the public sector.
As a way to reduce the deficit for this year, the Government is preparing an advance payment for the Income Tax for 2023, which seeks to raise some $200,000 million from some 1,900 companies and with whom he hopes to finance the bonus for retirees that will be announced today.
