Without the judicial brake, Neuquén begins the collection of the road tax

The Municipality will apply the rate to local fuel next week, as confirmed by Mayor Mariano Gaido who indicated that the collection will be exclusively for somaintain the price of the urban bus ticket. He said that it will be done jointly with the communal leaders of Cipolletti, Centenario, Plottier and Cutral Co.

It is after the Superior Court of Justice rejected the precautionary measure proposed by the Association of Gastronomic and Hoteliers of San Martín de los Andes thatthat he intended to suspend it, so there are no legal impediments to putting it into effect.

Gaido, in statements to UNC CALF radio, said that there was no door left to knock on in the national government to establish that the tax that is paid today when all motorists fill up with fuel in the country could be distributed. The government of Javier Milei allocated the entire transportation fund for the city of Buenos Aires. Gaido along with 20 other community leaders began a stage of complaints that It culminated in the presentation of a bill to federalize the tax, but they were unable to break the will of the national government.

“We were waiting for that judicial decision to move forward with the implementation of this Municipal Urban Mobility Tax that was already approved months ago by the Deliberative Council, and which also has its regulatory decree ready“, stated Fernando Schpoliansky, Secretary of Finance, who reported that it implies 4.5 of the net value of the fuel.

He explained that, with this judicial decision, not only the municipality of Neuquén can put it into effect, but also all those in the area who were working in the same direction, such as Plottier, Centenario, Cutra Co, San Martín de los Andes and Cipolletti.

“It must be remembered that this local rate arises from the elimination of the Transportation Compensation Fund for the entire interior of the country, a unilateral decision of the National government that was applied in December and that “It left us without these funds that corresponded to the city to sustain the public transportation system.”Schpoliansky recalled.

And at this point he clarified that today “Service stations throughout the country charge two national taxes on the value of a liter of fuel: on liquid fuels and the carbon dioxide tax, and the Nation collects them in all cities, but it stopped sharing them with the provinces and therefore with the municipalitieshe mentioned.

He clarified: “This supports the compensation fund that now only the AMBA receives. This is an anti-federal, unfair and inequitable attitude from a tax point of view, the station owners throughout the country collect these two national taxes, now they must also collect the municipal urban mobility rate.”
