    Has anyone had this included on their invoice?  We are planning on having our rehearsal dinner at the Kukua Restaurant and they included a 16% ITBIS on our invoice.  I looked it up and it seems to be some tax on goods in the DR but our resort didn't have that on our invoice.  Just wondering if anyone else has run into this?

      Hi sunny

      To keep things simple, many Hotels (Resorts) include these charges within their food, drink and room prices.

      Goods and services in the Dominican Republic are subject to a 16% government value-added tax.
      At restaurants, for example, the bill includes the 16% ITBIS  and allows restaurants to collect a 10% service charge.
      This means an additional 26% can be charged to your total bill.

      It is also advisable to ask your Restaurant rebefore ordering if you wish to pay by credit card.

      Greetings Pascal
