The states of SP, RJ, MG, PR, GO and SC also reduced ICMS. The measure complies with supplementary law 194/22, which limits the collection of ICMS on fuel, electricity, communications and public transport to the rate applied to goods in general.
“I signed the decree authorizing the reduction of the tax rate in Alagoas from 29% to 17%”, said Governor Paulo Dantas (MDB).
Before, the ICMS on gasoline was 29%, on electricity, at 27%, and on communications, at 30%.
