“This law arrived yesterday (Thursday) afternoon and I have signed it immediately to allow time for it to take effect before the collection of the 2021 Machao begins and thus be able to give effective relief to the pockets of hundreds of thousands of people,” Alvarado said.

For vehicles valued at less that ¢7 million colones, the reduction is 50%. Vehicles with a tax value between ¢7 million and ¢10 million will have a 25% reduction on that tax, while vehicles valued between ¢10 million to ¢15 million, the reduction is15%.

Likewise, the 50% reduction will apply to all light and and heavy-duty vehicles (plate CL and C respectively), buses, tourism, agricultural machinery, rental cars and public service.

As for motorcycle owners, those with a value of less than ¢1 million will be exempt from Value Added Tax (VAT).
