Santo Domingo.- An Accounts Chamber audit of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) uncovered that the justices’ salaries were RD$6.5 million higher than those of the Central Electoral Board (JCE) in 2012.

“Senior officials of the entity, acting in the performance of their duties, didn’t adhere to the mandatory legal, statutory and regulatory provisions for administrators of public funds," the report said, quoted by diariolibre.com.

It notes that the high Court violates articles of law 29-11, which calls for the justices to have salaries equal to those of the JCE.

The TSE justices were paid a total RD$22.08 million in fixed salaries during 2012, while those of the JCE received RD $15.5 million, or RD$6.53 million more.

According to new OECD-ECLAC-CIAT report:

Tax Revenues Continue to Rise in Latin America, but Are Low and Varied Among Countries

Argentina and Brazil have the highest tax revenue to GDP ratio in the region, while Guatemala and the

Dominican Republic stand at the lower end.

"Wide national variations exist across Latin American countries. At the upper end are Argentina (37.3%) and Brazil (36.3%) which are both above the OECD average, while at the lower end are Guatemala (12.3%) and the Dominican Republic (13.4%). The corresponding range in OECD countries was from 48% in Denmark to 19.6% in Mexico."

Main findings:

Tax to GDP ratios

In 2012, the tax to GDP ratio rose in 13 of the 18 countries covered, fell in 4 (Chile, Guatemala, Mexico and Uruguay), and remained unchanged in one (Costa Rica).

The difference between the OECD average tax to GDP ratio and that for the 18 countries covered is currently around 14 percentage points, compared with 19 percentage

The largest falls in 2012 were in Uruguay (1.0 percentage point) and Chile (0.4 points)

Over the 2007-2012 period, 11 countries recorded increases, the largest being in Argentina (8 percentage points), Ecuador (7 points) and Paraguay (4 points). There were declines in the other 7 countries, the largest being in Venezuela and the Dominican Republic (3 percentage points).

Tax structures

Following strong growth over the past twenty years, general consumption taxes (mainly VAT and sales taxes) accounted for 33.8% of tax revenues in the Latin American countries in 2011 (compared to 20.3% in OECD countries). The share of specific consumption taxes (such as excises and taxes on international trade) declined to 17.7% (versus 10.7% in the OECD).

Taxes on income and profits accounted for an average 25.4% of revenues in 2011 across

Taxes on income and profits accounted for an average 25.4% of revenues in 2011 across Latin America, while social security contributions represented 16.9% (in the OECD, comparable figures are 33.5% and 26.2% respectively).



Memo to Joseanus:


Read CEPAL and get INFORMED INFORMATION BEFORE BLOWING MORE SMOKE.


DR REMAINS A LOW TAXATION REGIME.


The rates of INFORMALITY in the Economic sphere IS VERY HIGH.
