If approved, see how the project will work

The text of the PL provides that the benefit would only apply to taxi drivers duly registered and legalized with municipal authorities. Another important point is that they have not purchased vehicles that are exempt or not subject to Tax on the Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS) in the last two years.

Furthermore, the benefited vehicle must be intended exclusively for use as a taxi, with a limit of one purchase per person. It is worth noting that the project still needs to be submitted to a vote by other parliamentarians and await sanction.
