Monday 31 August 2015 | 10:36 CET | News
The National Congress of Honduras has passed a decree that opens the way for city councils to apply selective taxes on local telecoms service operators, reports local daily La Tribuna. The amendment to the Municipalities Act allows councils to levy a tax amounting to 1.8 percent of the gross revenues reported by suppliers of "personal communications services (PCS), data transmission and communications, fixed telephony, carrier services, mobile telephony, internet or cable access to computer networks and TV."
