After confirming the truck loaded with footwear without tax documents on BR 230, the tax auditors from the 5th Regional Management took the vehicle to the Nilson Lopes Tax Station to check and calculate the ICMS tax and penalty. 600 boxes of sneakers without fiscal documentation were accounted for. After the irregularity was verified, a notice of infraction was drawn up and the amount of ICMS and fine of R$ 126,114.00 was charged, which was properly collected to the state treasury.
Intensified fiscal actions - The Sefaz-PB remains with intensified fiscal actions in the five regional managements of the State as a way to curb the circulation of goods with bad documentation, pending regularity or without invoice. The objective of the inspections, with mobile blitzes on the highways and inspections of goods in transit, through monitoring, interceptions, and channels for complaints, is to combat tax evasion and unfair competition in the market.
