This post is an answer to this post: Why I Left Canada and Became A Citizen of the Dominican Republic written by Jeff Berwick in dollarvigilante.com
I’m a Dominican, currently in Canada, permanent resident and in order to promptly obtain Canadian citizenship. Dominican citizen as well.
I think you’re living in a perfect bubble in the Dominican Republic in the bubble that many aspire to live. The tax issue is what worries me least of your case honestly. Who does not pay taxes in the Dominican Republic, simply is not contributing to the economy, and therefore its presence does not add to a country, and now DR needs people who join and contribute financially.
Dominican taxes, are paid by the poor and middle class. Rich or government people, corrupt people don’t need to pay taxes, they just need how to avoid them, and I’m pretty sure you can help them
