The Dirección Nacional de Tributación (National Directorate of Taxation) shut down last week, 18 retail business located in different parts of the country, for breach of their tax obligations.

Carlos Vargas, director of Tributación, explained that when dealing only with invoicing/billing problems, they only close the offending location, but when lateness and other irregularities are added, all the retail locations of a business are shut down.
