Hundreds of businesspeople gathered in front of Palácio Piratini on Monday afternoon asking for the Tax on Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS) rate not to be increased. The demonstration was organized by Federasul, which pointed to the lack of fulfillment of a promise by Governor Leite as the main motivation for the act. Last week, the state government postponed the entry into force of the decrees that removed tax benefits, which was called the government’s plan B to increase revenue.

The entity’s president, Rodrigo Sousa Costa, spoke about the fight that Federasul promises to do again, including the promise to resume the scoreboard that indicates the voting tendency of each deputy. “We are betting on the Gaucho parliament to bring common sense. He (parliament) will reject any increase, whether to 17.5%, 18% or 19%, and will keep the rate as it is. We are here for Governor Eduardo Leite to fulfill his promise that he would not raise taxes. We will run a very strong campaign again. Many deputies have already said that they maintain their position and we will talk again based on this movement today”, he stated.

State and federal deputies also participate in the protest and speak at the sound car parked in front of the Piratini Palace. Among them, state deputy Paparico Bacchi (PL), current vice-president of the Legislative Assembly, pointed out that there is no climate for the approval of the rate increase. “We are working to reject the proposal. The big issue is the renegotiation of the bad debt with the Union. The government desperately needs to increase revenue. We have many difficulties, producers in debt, businesspeople who went bankrupt during the pandemic and the withdrawal of incentives will make this worse,” he said.

The executive of Rede Fort in RS, Joeci Hercilio, was one of several businesspeople who participated in the event. He spoke of the hope of withdrawing the decrees and the tax rate project. “We are against the increase because we know that the purchasing capacity of the people of Rio Grande do Sul has not increased. If it (Milk) increases taxes, consumption capacity will decrease. This will cause difficulties for all business owners and consumers themselves. We don’t even want modal. We want it to stay in the shape it is,” he added.
