The joint committee of the Congress that analyzes the tax reform it will be extended for another thirty days. It had the deadline for operation until this Wednesday, 31. Created at the beginning of last year, the collegiate, which brings together deputies and senators, had little progress in the debates. The objective was to arrive at a single proposal that reconciled the texts that are being processed in the Chamber and the Senate, in addition to the PEC sent by the federal government. However, few meetings were held and, with the pandemic of Covid-19, the theme was in the background. The committee chairman, senator Rocha rocha (PSDB), went so far as to announce that it would not ask for the renewal of the works.

But after conversations with the presidents of the Chamber and the Senate, he was convinced to give another month of operation. This increases the pressure for the rapporteur, deputy Aguinaldo Ribeiro (PP), submit a text. According to him, the opinion is ready – only the last adjustments to be made with the federal, state and municipal governments. From there, the President of Congress, Rodrigo Pacheco, should set a schedule for discussions and voting. The expectation of the leaders of Congress is that the tax reform will be voted on in the House and in the Senate by the month of October.
