Everything thought that after the meeting of President Leonel Fernandez with hotel investors at the beginning of the year in Punta Cana, and attended by the Deputy director of the DGII, the differences in tax percentage between both sides had been exceeded.
That was not a meeting to talk about taxes, but tourism in general, but by the way served to remove tension between the DGII and investors. What is more, it can be said that there was a turning point in which the tension between the two of them was terminated.
But when everything seemed to be going down the path of the agreement, after meetings in which amounts were concretized and other issues that were embarrancadas, again the differences re-emerged when revising the rates upward the Directorate General of Taxes.
In short, that today there is total disagreement because the DGII wants to increase taxes even more and investors believe that this measure is exaggerated and can have serious difficulties for companies whose results of recent years have not been Excellent.
They will have to mediate people close to both sides, including institutions, because eternalizing this problem is bad for the country, as well as for the government and for entrepreneurs who bet on the Dominican Republic as a great tourist destination in the Caribbean.
It is necessary to find a meeting point so that the disencounter does not go to the elderly and the world of Dominican tourism ends up feeling.

Thus, Guevara insisted that Mexico remains a “number one” destination for Americans, and reiterated that there is no evidence linking violence with the decline in tourism activity.
