It should be noted that the collection of these funds allows the District to contribute to the environmental efforts that are carried out by Corpoguajira., including, the execution of programs and projects for the protection or restoration of the environment "the environmental surtax is considered as a tax linked to the property tax charged by local authorities under rates set by each of them and with specific limitations established by law", Christian Roys said, Financial Coordinator of Corpoguajira.
In addition, He specified that “this is stipulated in the article 44 de la Ley 99 of 1993 which gives freedom of decision to the local authority, so that a percentage of the property tax payment is allocated to the protection of the environment or that it establishes an environmental surcharge”.

Additionally, the possibility of the PSE and of using the Aval Pay application was enabled.. Few days left for taxpayers to benefit from this discount.
