Rolando Perdomo, Chief Financial Superintendent, said this greatly benefits the people of San Pedro, because it is paying the outstanding principal from 2012 backwards.
This decree was published in the Official Gazette on May 20th of this year, and the terms expire on December 31st at 12:00 midnight. The windows of the revenue control of City Hall will remain open until midnight on December 31st, in order to attend to taxpayers who were unable to conduct their transactions before this time
The San Pedro Sula municipality hopes to raise more than 150,000,000 Lempiras, which is the amount the municipality was able to collect during the amnesty passed in 2010.
Taxpayers who are in default have the opportunity to pay their debt in installments, as long as they cover all of the amount owed before the end of this term. Otherwise, the municipality will again apply surcharges that were approved before the amnesty.
The tax arrears of the San Pedro Sula Municipality are estimated at nearly one billion Lempiras.
