President Javier Milei, who has summoned lawmakers for special sessions starting December 26, will send 11 bills to Congress, including reforms to income tax and double taxation rules.

President Javier Milei, who has summoned lawmakers for special sessions starting December 26, will send 11 bills to Congress, including reforms to income tax and double taxation rules.

The new bills will be debated between December 26 and January 31, with Milei seeking a wholesale reform of Argentina’s economy. 

Below, a list of legislation that the president is officially seeking to have approved during extraordinary sessions:

  
1 - Bill to reform the functions of the State.
(This is a bill that contemplates a series of changes that could not be implemented through Milei's recent DNU, such as modifications to the tax regime.)

2 - Draft Bill modifying similar [Law] N° 19.945 regarding the establishment of the Single Paper Ballot (Senate Exp. 4-CD-22).
(A bill that was approved by the Chamber of Deputies in mid-2022. Therefore, it must be immediately dealt with in the Upper House, where the ruling party will seek to strengthen its alliances with the PRO, dissident Peronists and provincial blocks, in order to approve the project. With this system, the voter will see on a single ballot paper the names of the candidates of all the political forces competing in the election, and must mark the candidate of his preference.)

3 - Draft Bill of "Personal Income Tax Law.”
(Government wants to reverse lifting of income tax threshold passed by Sergio Massa in the middle of the electoral campaign.)

4 - Bill by which authorisation is requested so that the President of the Nation may be absent from the country during 2024 when governmental reasons so require.

5 - Draft Bill approving the Agreement between the Argentine Republic and Japan for the Elimination of Double Taxation with respect to Income Taxes and the Prevention of Tax Evasion and Avoidance, signed in the City of Osaka, Japan, on June 27, 2019 (Msje. 230/19).
