For a few years, the treasury has implemented a more flexible and less expensive control program, with the help of technology, which has allowed it to increase collection efficiency, Roberto Colín Mosqueda, a member of Fiscal Commission 2 of the College of Accountants, said in an interview. public of Mexico.

Programs leave additional income

The SAT revealed that the implementation of the Obligation Compliance program and the Collection Falls program, as well as coercive collection, allowed for additional income of 133,412 million pesos, 14.3% more than in 2020.

Only in Collection Falls 32,685 million pesos were obtained and in Compliance with Obligations 63,778 million pesos.

Coercive collection, a procedure focused on promoting the payment of certain debts through persuasive actions and invitations to regularization, collected 36,949 million pesos in 2021.

“In accordance with the federal government’s austerity commitment to make public spending more efficient,” said the SAT.

Given this, Juvenal Lobato Díaz, professor of tax law at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, commented that spending less revenue is not necessarily a good policy.

“Although that means that he did not spend more than the previous year, it is combined with not returning the money to taxpayers, but above all with the modifications in terms of deductions,” said the professor.
