    This one is dated the 3rd - One paragraph mentions 15% - So it appears places like Pali have chosen to charge on items above 100Cord - Is the number arbitrary Who knows - But there seems to be a bevy of receipt clips posted that seem to confirm.

    Article I saw in paper said the changes are causing mass confusion.

    So the govmint just says any transaction over 100 cords now has a 15% tax and the seller is responsible for collecting and submitting.......just like that? No law? No discussion....no time to adjust? That is an "act" if indeed it is...of insanity, NOT confusion.

    The end may be nearer than we thought.

    This is true - There is even talk of Gestapo walking the markets to ensure collection and remittance.

    Yes - The double whammy of both this 15% from below and tripling the "Profit tax" from 1% to 3% from above, is a shock to the system that would be hard to stomach at the best of times, let alone now.

    I use "tax" in quotes as is I think the truest example of "tax is theft" slogan in action. It appears the context is - You guys broke our revolution context, and now we are going to continue it on your nickel.

    Wonder how that will work out eh?

    All the taxation stuff will be interesting because the Oriental Market was left alone since forever, by all sides of government, in terms of IVA and other stuff. That was supposedly one of the reasons for the "popular" support of the FSLN. The commerce at the Oriental Market dwarfs anything else in Nicaragua, and there are some immensely wealthy people there who few, if any, have any knowledge of. Lots of cash and lots of dollars, used to be anyway.

    A Panamanian friend of mine sold shoes into the Oriental Market and it was his biggest sales area in all of CentAm. I will never forget that he was in Managua collecting payments after the Xmas holidays and he had, no shit, about $45,000 is cash USD. It was a big bunch, and that is how he got paid, mainly in cash. He used to declare it, or so he said, going and arriving.

    Interesting - Pun intended...

    La Prensa is reporting this morning that the 15% will actually be accessed upon earned interest in a bank account - Regardless if you are are a citizen, resident, or "other"

    This one is a little sad - Mel to us to this place.

    Fellow who owns it is from the Hammer (Well, born there, he lives in Orillia, I was born in Hamilton as well)

    SJDS was never really a good town for business anyways (Just look at the turnover, but in these times it must be especially brutal..

    I guess,, with the right Yoga instructor.
    She'd have to be really hot and like older men.

    I could glue a Man Bun over that bald spot on the back of my head and pretend I'm a Never-Trumper
    Fake it for a while,, I suppose.
    Until she caught me watching Tucker or Hannity

    Not sure on how to link this one, but if you follow Robert Ow's Instagram (mrowtransportation)

    In Instagram, you will see his video clip of SJDS beach at around 3PM on a Thursday - Only one person (Nica) walking on the beach area, and they were walking off.

    If you want a Yoga free beach it appears Thursday aft is the charm :-) .
