The Taxometer panel(Impostômetro) was inaugurated on 20 April 2005 and it’s installed in the headquarter building of the ACSP.
Also online, (www.impostometro.com.br) every citizen can track the total taxes paid by brazilians to the federal, state and local governments, according to states and municipalities.
The system also informs the total taxes paid since January 2000 and makes estimates of how much will be paid by December of this year.
