Cartel Received Tax Break from Mexican Government, Says Watchdog


Mexico gave a substantial tax break to a company owned by a convicted money launderer with Los Zetas Cartel, an anti-corruption organization stated in their latest report. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) denied the assertion and claimed it was a bad faith effort to tarnish his administration.

Mexicanos Contra La Corrupcion y La Impunidad (MCCI) recently argued that Mexico’s Tax Office (SAT) gave a break of $92,561,000 pesos or $4.8 million USD to a gas station in Saltillo, Coahuila, owned by Juan Manuel “El Mono” Munoz, a convicted Los Zetas money launderer. The report released this week said Munoz owns a majority share of Mira Sierra, which benefited from a tax debt forgiveness procedure.

Munoz previously faced several indictments in the Western District of Texas in a money laundering case. Earlier this year, Munoz took part in a plea deal and became an informant in exchange for a lesser sentence. Munoz was also linked to former Coahuila Governor Humberto Moreira who was arrested and released in Spain in connection with his alleged dealings with Los Zetas. read more

9 Comments on Cartel Received Tax Break from Mexican Government, Says Watchdog

  1. That would be some interesting tax returns to subpoena, although I didn’t know Mexico even had such requirements as ‘tax filings’.

  2. Wouldn’t you expect the Mehhecan government to support its larger industries as our government does?

    Justify corn ethanol on its scientific merit.
    Health insurance behemoths.
    Banks “too big to fail” (the biggest crock of shit ever foisted on Commerce)

  3. Cartel just assassinated a Sheriffs Deputy in my county. El Dorado California. We are on the brink of shooting any Mex with a tat all the way up to their neck. It’s not like they’re that hard to spot. Our Sheriff is most awesome. He’s pissed. We’re pissed. Another victim of sanctuary State Policies. I guess we should be relieved, Gavin, the fag, sent his condolences.

  4. Sounds like they’re learning from their North American cohorts in crime.

    Read through our tax bills sometime.

    izlamo delenda est …

  5. Well, it’s not like Mexican government officials accepted endless suitcases full of dirty money from scumbag drug traffickers, just a little tax break…oh, wait…
