Tax hikes send Tico farmers to the streets

first_imgFrom the print editionBy T.J. Gilles | Special to The Tico TimesCosta Rican farmers will be taking to the streets outside the Legislative Assembly next week to demand huge tax cuts on agricultural lands.Organizations of farmers, cooperatives and agribusiness say that without an 80 percent decrease in impending taxes fomented by a 2007 reform, rural Costa Rica as it has come to be known may go the way of the golden toad and other endangered life forms.Álvaro Sáenz of the National Agroindustry Chamber (CNAA) called the tax hikes “a species of inverted agrarian reform” that would mean “producers who can’t pay the new tributes will end up losing their means of subsistence.”At a news conference in San José to announce protests scheduled for July 31 in the nation’s capital, Guido Vargas, of UPA Nacional, an organization of small- and medium-sized producers, said the demonstrations beginning on Tuesday will be “the biggest we have seen in this country.” He added that producers and their supporters are ready to camp outside the assembly until they achieve tax relief that can keep the country’s agriculture viable and competitive.Vargas said: “We need to make it clear that this struggle isn’t only for the benefit of farmers but for the benefit of all society. There is nothing more important than food security.”According to Guillermo Vargas, of the Monteverde Institute, Costa Rica imports the vast majority of such daily staples as rice and beans. “Eighty percent of our beans are imported from such places as Nicaragua and China,” he said. Jesús Villalobos, of the National Council of Cooperatives (CONACOOP), said, “We need to increase our production, our innovation [and] our research and development.” Looming tax hikes will put such investments on the back burner and put Costa Rica on the slippery slope of uncompetitiveness in many commodities, he added.CNAA’s Sáenz said the taxes will affect some 680,000 rural families who may be forced to abandon their holdings and seek wage-earning elsewhere.In a letter in the daily La Nación on May 15 (the “Day of the Farmer”), CNAA, UPA Nacional and CONACOOP described the tax law as “irrational and confiscatory” and “agrarian reform in reverse.”The complicated formula has 10 factors for valuing farmland – most of them unrelated to current use or production capacity, the letter said.The letter also said new taxes would result in “the insolvency of many producers” who face tax burdens as much as 10-fold, and “many will see themselves forced from their activities.”Sáenz said not only little farms are at risk.“Big plantations, many of them owned by cooperatives, are going to go broke. The big companies are going to go to other countries to produce,” Sáenz said. “Pineapple growers are going to go to Colombia, [and] banana growers will go to Honduras and Guatemala, creating great poverty in rural Costa Rica.”Villalobos said the “unjust” tax law values forest, pasture and cropland on par with “land dedicated to commercial businesses, residences and five-star hotels.”Lawmakers, however, said that another tax bill, dedicated to preserving agricultural land, could allow a tax reduction of 50 percent if passed.The National Union of Local Governments (UNGL) said a reduction of 40 percent might be feasible, but both are far from the 80 percent cut that will be demanded by protesters.In a statement, UNGL said it wants no proposal that “will affect the incomes of municipalities, especially rural cantons.”“It is important to us to approve projects that truly fortify the municipality,” the statement said. “We will continue fighting … to bring better services to the diverse sectors and citizens of the country.” Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

ABS Signs US Bancorp CDC

first_img Add “”U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation””:http://www.usbank.com/cgi_w/cfm/commercial_business/products_and_services/financing/tax_credit.cfm?redirect=cdc to the list of financial institutions choosing to enhance technology solutions within its mortgage division.[IMAGE]””Applied Business Software (ABS)””:http://www.themortgageoffice.com/ recently announced that U.S. Bancorp CDC is utilizing its servicing management platform, The Mortgage Office.ABS noted in a company statement that U.S. Bancorp CDC intends to use The Mortgage Office to facilitate the servicing of its load of new market tax credit related loans. [COLUMN_BREAK]Commenting on the new technology initiative, U.S. Bancorp CDC’s director of investment fund management and loan servicing, Charity Braden, said, “”We needed a more robust and flexible loan servicing platform… to replace the multitude of individual spreadsheets used to track loan activity and subsequent cash distributions. Another goal was to be able to track upper-tier leverage loans within the NMTC structure and to streamline the internal accounting processes related to all of these loans on one system, thereby eliminating duplicative work. USBCDD found this flexibility with The Mortgage Office software, along with the added bonus of affordability.””Responding to the addition of U.S. Bancorp CDC to ABS’ client roster, the company’s president, Jerry Delgado, said, “”We are pleased to add them to our growing family of customers, and I have no doubt The Mortgage Office will help them service their portfolio of loans and manage their investment base more efficiently and with greater profitability.””U.S. Bancorp CDC specialized in the financing of communities and affordable housing via its new markets tax credits, while ABS is an established developer and provider of software systems for the mortgage industry.

Build Up Build Out

first_img Construction Starts 2017-08-21 Joey Pizzolato Build Up, Build Out August 21, 2017 586 Views New construction starts are looking up, according to a recent report by Dodge Data & Analytics. New construction value, on a seasonally adjusted rate, has grown 6 percent compared to June, and now sits at $728.1 billion.Dodge’s index is showing promise after an 11 percent decline in the second quarter.“July’s increase means the third quarter began on a healthy note, which should help to maintain the up-and-down pattern on a quarterly basis that’s been present for construction starts over the past year,” stated Robert A. Murray, Chief Economist for Dodge Data & Analytics. “Within that up-and-down pattern there remains a modest upward trend, as it appears that construction starts are still in the process of reaching a peak, as opposed to having already reached a peak…It’s true that residential building is now seeing generally decreased activity for multifamily housing, but the monthly declines continue to be mixed in with monthly gains, such as what took place in July.”Residential building in particular rose by 8 percent, although single-family housing remained unchanged when compared with June. In the first quarter, residential building was up 6 percent, however in the entirety of the second quarter it only rose 4 percent.By region, single-family construction starts were up in every region but one when compared with June’s starts. In the Northeast, starts were up 3 percent comparatively; in the South Central they were up 2 percent, and in the South Atlantic they were up a meager 1 percent. The only negative change was in the Midwest, which was down 3 percent. The West region remained unchanged from the previous month.The report is confident that the third quarter of 2017 will continue to show promise and construction starts will continue to increase, although there are numerous other factors that are taken into account when determining the figure, including multifamily housing starts, nonbuilding construction, and public works projects.center_img Share in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, Newslast_img read more

and blood pressure levels (Source: Sandra Cohen-Rose and Colin Rose/Flickr) Top News Morbid obesity appears to stand alone as a risk for heart failure but not for other major types of heart disease new research has found The study involving more than 13000 people found that morbidly obese individuals were more than two times more likely to have heart failure than comparable people with a healthy body mass index after accounting for high blood pressure cholesterol and blood sugar levels The findings suggest that even if a patient has normal blood sugar cholesterol and blood pressure levels they may still be at higher risk of developing heart failure if they are severely obese “Obesity in our study has emerged as one of the least explained and likely most challenging risk factors for heart failure because there is no magic pill to treat it” said Chiadi Ndumele Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore Maryland US Although it is not completely clear why obesity alone is linked to heart failure independent of risk factors and not to stroke or coronary heart disease Ndumele said that there is evidence to suggest that extra body weight exerts a higher metabolic demand on the heart and that fat cells in the abdomen may even release molecules toxic to heart cells Obesity has long been known to increase the likelihood of high blood pressure elevated blood cholesterol and diabetes — all established risk factors for heart and blood vessel diseases Treating and controlling these conditions have formed the bedrock strategies for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease Ndumele said To learn if this was truly the case for all types of cardiovascular disease Ndumele and his colleagues looked at the medical records of 13730 people who

modernisation programme involving a complete revamp of the classroom and laboratories to bring them on par with international universities Stating that the plan is to ensure that all classrooms get empowered with smart technology Vice-Chancellor Wasudeo Gade said the new changes might cost upwards of Rs 70 crore and it would take at least two years to complete the project “Until now there had been only superficial repairs to the classrooms where plastering or painting touch-ups would be done But our plan envisages a smart classroom the likes of which one sees in foreign varsities like Harvard or Oxford Currently we are in the process of preparing detailed tender documents and the restrictions and terms will be so stringent that only the best in the business will qualify At least three different tenders will be floated for civil works classroom furniture and general repairs and fourth for the classroom technology” said Gade Share This Article Related Article Asked what he actually meant by a smart classroom Gade said that they would be technology enhanced classrooms that foster opportunities for teaching and learning by integrating various kinds of learning technology “Firstly all the classrooms will be centrally air-conditioned The classrooms will have computers projectors specialised software assistive listening devices audio/visual capabilities and such things For example if a there is a class of anatomy in session and the professor wants to be able to show certain things to students they should be able to connect to YouTube or such websites where they are able to demonstrate it to students The classrooms would be connected to Wi-Fi technology and be interactive so that if in any corner of the world there is a seminar or lecture being delivered which we register for or find necessary for our students we should be able to connect to them These classrooms would also facilitate guest faculty from all over the world to connect to our classrooms” said Gade The plan goes a step further as the varsity officials want not just professors to use technology to make classroom learning more interesting but even empower students in the process “Eventually the technology will come to the aid of students as we plan for not just smart classrooms but smart desks as well There will be connectivity on each desk and a student sitting in any part of the classroom can ask questions and send their inputs to the professors during the live lecture sessions” said Gade Besides the classrooms the modernisation plan also includes repairs and upgrade of all lifts and staircases changing flooring and ceiling in and outside classrooms besides beautification of the varsity campus As far as the modernisation plan for laboratories is concerned Gade said latest equipment would be bought besides modernising all kinds of electric connections pipelines exhaust lines water supply UPS system and power backups and so on “It is a massive project and one that
