Commission approves tax exemption for the communities of Jayaque and San Julian

Written by Karla Gutiérrez

The members of the Treasury Commission issued two favorable rulings to support the communities of Jayaque, in La Libertad, and the population of San Julián, municipality located in Sonsonate.

Both documents approved consist of two exemptions from the payment of all types of taxes.

The first of these is to exempt the Asociación Salvadoreña de Jayaquenses en Acción (AJAYAC) from taxes, including the tax on the transfer of personal property and the provision of services (VAT), which may be caused by the introduction of an ambulance into the country.

This vehicle will be donated to the municipal government of Jayaque, which is equipped with stretchers, oxygenation equipment, first aid kit, immobilization system, vascular access kit.

This exemption would be granted in the next plenary session, if so decided by the deputies through a public vote, without harming the surveillance and control that the respective tax agencies must exercise.

In addition, the term for this process is only three months, after which time AJAYAC will have to pay the respective costs.


A container with necessities

The second resolution approved by the parliamentarians seeks to exonerate the municipality of San Julián, located in Sonsonate, from the payment of taxes -including the transfer of movable goods and the provision of services (VAT)- that may be caused by the introduction into the country of a container with necessities.

The company Zapps Wholesale, based in the State of North Carolina in the United States, has donated a container with various products destined for the municipality.

According to what was stated in the work session, the objective is to provide help to children, young people and families in general who are in economic need and, at the same time, allow the municipality to comply with the purpose of providing benefits to the population.

The report describes that the container is inventoried with a variety of shoes, household appliances, clothes, inflatable games, and candies.
