One ​​of the most discussed issues during the approval of the tax reform and its conciliation has to do with the elimination of article 15 that establishes a tax on derived businesses of the churches. The discussion centered on the bid generated by Katherine Miranda and the pressure generated by opposition parties to repeal the paragraph.

Precisely this Thursday that article was repealed, whose negative vote was warned by the Conservative and Liberal parties, both from the government caucus. The congresswoman from the Green Alliance regretted the decision made in the middle of the conciliation and assured that “blackmail won.”

It has been a battle that we have been fighting for years but it's not going to end here,” Miranda said in a video posted on Twitter a few minutes ago. Likewise, he indicated that he will continue promoting this tax from Congress in other bills.
