Burkina: President Traoré rejects the new tax stamp printed abroad

The Burkinabè Head of State, Captain Ibrahim Traoré, rejected the new tax stamp printed abroad, inviting technicians to present in the short term, "a Burkinabè solution", said learned the AIB on Wednesday, from introduced sources.

The Directorate General of Taxes (DGI) presented on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, a new "physical-digital" stamp of 200 FCFA, printed abroad.

But very quickly, voices rose on the web to criticize this outsourcing, because according to them, the necessary expertise exists in Burkina Faso.

The same day, the DGI corrected by saying that the new stamps will be produced in the country within seven months.

This Wednesday evening, the AIB learned from well-informed sources that the Head of State, Captain Ibrahim Traoré, has instructed to terminate the contract.

Thus, technicians are asked to offer “a Burkinabè solution within a short period of time”.

Our sources understand that a digital tax stamp is being considered.
