Guedes: 3/4 receive less than R$ 5 thousand; if you give exemption, only 20% will pay tax

The Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, said this Thursday, 27th, that his team is still studying the possibility of increasing the Income Tax (IR) exemption ranges. He gives a press conference at the São Paulo Commercial Association (ACSP).

“When you say that you are going to give an exemption of R$ 5 thousand, R$ 6 thousand, you are saying that only 20% will pay the Income Tax. So, you need to look for this resource elsewhere, knowing that, in the whole world, the income tax is the most virtuous tax”, said the minister.

In TV advertising, President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) promised to zero the IR for those who earn up to R$6,000, in a reaction to the campaign of former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT), who proposed to zero the tax rate. for incomes of up to R$ 5 thousand. For Guedes, the current government is more competent and, therefore, can make higher proposals.

“I understand that if he says five, the president will say six; if he says that the minimum wage is R$1,200, the president says ‘mine is R$1,400′”, said the minister. “I have only one certainty: those who do not divert resources are able to pay better.”

Asked how the expansion of this exemption could work, the minister said that this question is not made by former President Lula in relation to the financing of his proposal. “Has he already told you where he is going to take it from?”, asked Guedes.
