Costa Rica seeks to tax education and basics

Tuesday, August 28, 2018


The government of Costa Rica has redrawn its plans for a fiscal reform, as promised by Rocío Aguilar, the Finance minister.

The government's main aim is to reverse the decision to declare a basket of basic consumer goods and private education free of tax. That would have meant a saving of some $170 million.

What is known as the Fiscal Commission was meant to have called a series of hearings on both issues.
