Proposed Tax Reform changes to be examined at CCPA seminar
By The Star Staff
Next Thursday, Sept. 28, tax experts will analyze the proposed changes in the Tax Reform filed by Gov. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia under House Bill 1839, as well as the bill’s economic and social impact for Puerto Rico, as part of the hybrid seminar “Myths and Realities of the Tax Reform,” organized by the Certified Public Accountants Association of Puerto Rico (CCPA by its Spanish initials).
CPA Edmy Rivera Colón, president of the CCPA, stressed that “the proposed Tax Reform is a comprehensive one that includes important aspects for individuals, businesses and corporations.”
“At the CCPA we are committed to the socioeconomic development of our island, which is why we support any proposal that encourages the redistribution of tax rates and the simplification of doing business in Puerto Rico,” she said. “At this event, in addition to familiarizing ourselves with the changes of the tax reform, we will also learn the recommendations made by the Advisory Group.”
The seminar will be held in person at CCPA headquarters in Hato Rey, and will be offered in virtual mode through the Zoom platform. Speakers include: CEP David A. Rodríguez Ortiz and CPA Víctor Pizarro Núñez, co-chairs of the CCPA Committee on Tax Affairs; CEP Felipe Rodríguez Lafontaine, CCPA representative to the Governor’s Advisory Group; and economist Gustavo Vélez Pizarro, president and founder of Inteligencia Económica.
