Several tax hikes are coming for Jalisco residents in 2022


Both at the federal, state, and municipal levels, 2022 appears with increases in several obligations, including property taxes, vehicles registrations, and other tax obligations

A few days after the end of 2021, next year will be accompanied by increases in various obligations of citizens, mainly in terms of taxes. These levies are from the three levels of government.

In some of the scenarios, the increases will be higher than the inflation registered during this year.

Federal government

In federal matters, the Special Tax on Production and Services (IEPS) will have an increase of 7.36% compared to the 3.3% increase that was applied in 2021.

This will directly impact the prices of soft drinks, cigarettes, and gasoline after the update of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP).

As published in the Official Gazette of the Federation, the quota for flavored drinks will be 1.39 pesos per liter, against 1.30 pesos that were applied in 2021.

Per cigar applicable to worked tobaccos will be 0.54 pesos per unit compared to 0.51 pesos in 2021; while the IEPS for gasoline type Magna will go from 5.1 to 5.49 pesos per liter; for Premium it will rise from 4.31 to 4.63 pesos per liter and for diesel, it will be 6.03 pesos.

In particular, the increase in fuels will also cause an escalation in product costs. For 2021 an inflation of 4.5% was estimated and ended at 7.3%. Banco de México’s estimate for 2022 is originally set at 4%.

It should be noted that within the Tax Miscellany of 2022, the Tax Administration System (SAT) also contemplates the application of more severe sanctions to those who evade their tax responsibilities in time, in addition to those who apply fraudulent practices for tax evasion.

Discounts of various types will be granted to those who pay their obligations in the first months of the year.
