The source, who requested anonymity because the measures are still being considered, also mentioned that the government is considering a tax reform that would include a 10% dividend tax and a drop in the corporate tax burden to 30% from 34%. The reform is less comprehensive than one passed by the Lower House last year but not by the Senate. It imposed a 15% tax on currently tax-exempt corporation dividends and lowered the corporate income tax rate to 26%.
According to a source familiar with the situation, Brazil’s government is considering reducing import duties on steel and ten other commodities, including food and construction materials, to assist down consumer prices.
