Last Friday (31) was published in the Official Journal (DOU), the assent of the bill (PL) 5 149 of 2020, which extends the exemption from the tax on industrialized products (IPI) on the acquisition of cars up to two thousand displacements for professional drivers, such as taxi drivers and application drivers, and for the disabled.
The extension of the exemption from the IPI on the purchase of new vehicles is valid until December 31, 2026. The advantage can be applied to the acquisition of new vehicles up to R $ 200,000, applicable taxes included . Previously, this limit was R $ 140,000. The exemption is valid for professional drivers and for people with severe or profound physical, visual, hearing and mental disabilities and people with autism spectrum disorders.
The project had a vetoed section, which broadened the exemption to include unmanufactured accessories. Today, only accessories and options that are factory-made are exempt. The device was the subject of a veto on the grounds that the calculation of the financial economic impact was not carried out, nor that compensatory measures were not presented.
