“I have always paid my taxes, and despite not being ‘wealthy’, I used to paid more than Nebot and certain ‘businessmen’. Everyone can see the tax declarations on the SRI website. It is public information,” wrote Correa on his Twitter account, answering Jaime Nebot, mayor of Guayaquil, who gave details on Monday of his tax payments after the president casted doubt on his tax contributions last weekend.
“I do not a chef and I pay my own food. I wonder if Correa can say that.” Answer: of course! I do not even live in Carondelet, despite being entitled to that. Nor do I live on private islands, but in my little house in the north of Quito.”
Correa then continued indicating that “in the midst of “desperation Nebot lies.” And cited the taxes the mayor paid in 2001: $ 657.06. “With the Revolution, in 2014 he paid $ 66,593.18, that is … 101 times more! How couldn´t he be desperate to defend his pocket? Evasion is over!”.
