The first levy period for China environmental protection tax began in April. The first environmental protection tax stamp issued by the Shanghai Pudong New Area Taxation Bureau was the first environmental protection tax stamp in China, indicating that the implementation of the environmental protection tax began in China.
The implementation of the environmental protection tax by the PRC is a major strategic plan made by the China State Council. It is of great significance to promote the construction of the ecological civilization in China and promote the development of high quality.
