Judge from MS state grants preliminary order to determine non-collection of a mining tax



The Judge from the 4ª Treasury’s Capital Court of Campo Grande has granted a preliminary order to a cement company to determine the non-collection of the Control, Monitoring, and Inspection of Research, Exploration and Exploitation of Mineral Resources Fee (TFRM).

As alleged, in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, 95% of this fee’s collection goes to the the State’s Road System Fund (Fundersul), instead of  financing inspection activies of public bodies that work together with the mining sector, as they should. The lack of connection between the taxing activity and the application of the collected values was one of the unconstitutional rules presented by the Judge.
