Normative Instruction RFB nº 2.081/2022 was published this Thursday (12/05), regulating the application of IPI exemptions for the purchase of vehicles by people with physical, hearing, mental, visual or autistic spectrum disorder. With the new rules in place, the analysis of orders in stock, suspended since January of this year, will resume.


With the enactment of Law i No. 14,287, published on December 31, 2021, the provisions that supported the analysis of requests were revoked and new hypotheses were introduced, however, with effectiveness pending regulation, making it impossible to carry out analyzes of the merits of the requests .


Decree 11.063/2022, published on Thursday (05/05), defined the new criteria for the evaluation of people with disabilities or with autism spectrum disorder, allowing regulation by the Federal Government, through the Federal Revenue.


Among the main innovations brought by the new rule are the value of the vehicle that can be purchased with exemption for people with disabilities, going from R$ 140,000.00 to R$ 200,000.00; and the possibility for people with hearing impairment to also take advantage of this tax benefit.


Until the biopsychosocial assessment is implemented, requests for exemption for people with disabilities or autism spectrum disorder will adopt the criteria established by Law No. 8,989/1995 and Decree No. 11,063/2022. In short, to be entitled to the exemption, the person must fit into at least one of the categories below.
