This is a businessman from Corrientes who was complied with by the norm that forced him to pay, according to increasing rates, a percentage according to the magnitude of his assets, as long as it is greater than 200 million pesos.
The federal justice of Corrientes ruled in favor of the Federal Administration of Public Revenues (AFIP) in a case initiated by a taxpayer who was opposed to paying the Solidarity and Extraordinary Contribution to great fortunes. The appeals chamber of that province upheld the appeal filed by the body led by Carlos Castagneto and, in this way, revoked the first instance ruling that had declared the one-time contribution to combat the effects of the coronavirus pandemic sanctioned in December 2020 unconstitutional.
This is a businessman from Corrientes who was subject to the norm that forced him to pay, according to increasing rates, a percentage according to the magnitude of his assets, as long as it is greater than 200 million pesos.. The objective of the initiative is to obtain genuine resources to finance public policies for health, economic reactivation and projects in strategic areas such as energy.
In 2021, the taxpayer filed a precautionary measure against the Contribution, which was granted by the court in the first instance and extended on various occasions. Now the Federal Chamber of Corrientes considered that there is no “conclusive evidence” about the damage that paying the contribution would generate, for which reason it resolved to revoke the opinion. In this sense, he argued that the supposed “overlapping” with other taxes does not make it unconstitutional in itself.
