The agreement, which would be signed on November 28, would increase the tax base for the Argentine treasury of nearly US$100 billion. From it, it is projected that the collection can increase by up to US$5 billion per year.
A delegation from Internal Revenue Service (IRS) dependent on the US Treasury will arrive in the country at the end of the month for its formal signing.
Among its characteristics, one of the most important has to do with the fact that it will be an intergovernmental agreement at the federal level. This makes the declaration of assets mandatory and includes so-called tax havens such as Delaware, Florida, Nebraska or Montana.
