Digital Tax Documents Now Legally Recognized

October 19, 2007

The Costa Rican Tax Administration will now accept digital documents as proof of income, debts and expenses, according to a release from the Finance Ministry.

Digital documents can replace the four years of physical files that Costa Rica’s tax law used to require, saving space and expense, Vice-Minister of Finance Jenny Phillips told the daily La Nación.

“Digital invoices are the result of current trends in information technology that has brought about a style of business over the Internet and electronic trade that the Tax Administration cannot ignore,” she said, according to the wire service ACAN-EFE.
