Ink Used in Book Publishing Could Go Tax Free

Brazilian senate is studying the bill that will make ebooks tax free. Now print books, or rather its inputs, are also under evaluation. A bill in the deputies chamber in Brasília could exempt ink used for printing books. The bill was proposed by congresswoman Mrs Antonia Lucia, who argues that Brazilian law already exempts taxes on books, newspapers and periodicals, but the whole production chain should be considered in order to lower its final price. The bill will be judged by ‘Finance and Taxation’ and ‘Constitution, Justice and Citizenship’ committees. If the bill should pass, the costs of Print on Demand publishers will also be considerably lowered.
