Baja California’s governor Osuna Millán made clear today his opposition to the proposal to even the tax rate in all of Mexico.
Currently in border states like Baja California the tax rate is 11%, while in the rest of the country the rate is 16%. Some factions of the Mexican government have been pushing to even out the tax rate and make it 16% for all states of Mexico. If this proposal is approved, it would mean a 5% increase for Baja.
Osuna Millán stated that said increase would put Baja California in a position of further disadvantage with regards to the United States, where the average tax rate is 8%. A higher tax rate in Mexico would mean tourists not buying products in Mexico and purchasing them instead in the United States.
