Diagnosis of Indirect Taxes and the Taxation of International Trade in the Dominican Republic
AbstractIn preparing this paper, the indirect tax systems in the Dominican Republic are examined both in terms of tax policy and also their revenue importance. These taxes include the taxation of import, value added (ITBIS), selected excise taxes, exit and entry taxes (tourism taxes), and the taxation of casinos and games of chance. The focus are both on the short-term revenue requirements of the government as well as on the tax reform measures that are needed in order to meet the longer term revenue requirements of the public sector. These reforms are taking place in an environment where tariff and institutional barriers to international trade are being reduced.
