The General Directorate of Internal Taxes (DGII) reported that a total of 1,527,844 vehicles renewed the tag on time for the 2022-2023 period for 91% compliance in relation to the 1,684,837 vehicles eligible for renewal.
Until the official closing date of the label renewal period, this Tuesday, January 31, for the Vehicle Circulation Tax, RD$2,514,343,500 of a general estimate of RD$2,743,183,500 million had already been collected.
This meant a 7% increase in collections during the business period compared to last year.
The general director of DGII, Luis Valdez Veras, recognized the effort and goodwill of the majority of the citizens who own vehicles who renewed their tag on time by almost 100%.
Call to avoid fines
Valdez Veras urged those who have not yet renewed to pay the cost of the tag to avoid fines from traffic agents.
Regarding the sanctions, Valdez indicated that more than charging this penalty, what is always about is avoiding crowds.
The term for renewal without surcharges began on October 18, 2022 and ended on January 15, 2023 online and on January 31 through the 33 authorized financial and cooperative entities.
Via the web portal www.dgii.gov.do, 130,729 tags equivalent to RD$233,098,500 were sold.
