Through the payment of the Extraordinary Solidarity Contribution of Great Fortunes – commonly known as “wealth tax” – the State has already collected about $ 223,000 million.

According to the report released by the authorities of the Federal Administration of Public Revenues (AFIP), around 10,000 people with assets exceeding $ 200 million have already complied with the obligation provided in the law sanctioned in December in order to collect extra funds. to alleviate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Most of the taxpayers reached by this contribution fulfilled their obligation. The resources generated will be essential to face the health and economic emergencies that the pandemic imposes on us ”, indicated the head of the AFIP, Mercedes Marcó del Pont, it’s a statement.

The contribution represented 2% of the assets of individuals who had declared a fortune of more than $ 200 million up to the date of the enactment of the law; 2.25% for those with a net worth between $ 300 million and $ 400 million; 2.5% for those who admitted a fortune of between $ 400 million and $ 600 million, and 2.75% for cases with patrimony between $ 600 million and $ 800 million.

The rate rises to 3% when the person’s fortune is between $ 800 million and $ 1,500 million; even 3.25% for assets ranging from $ 1,500 million to $ 3,000 million, and 3.5% for those whose fortune exceeds that last amount.

At the end of last year the Government had estimated that $ 307,000 million could be raised. AFIP sources were very satisfied with the results because, despite the resistance of some sectors, so far they have pocketed 73% of that figure. At the same time, they indicated that 80% of the potential universe of taxpayers complied.

According to calculations by AFIP technicians, that 20% implies about 3,000 people, although only 200 turned to the courts to avoid paying the contribution.
