Summary: The government of Nueva Granada here publishes a collection of laws passed by the senate for the year 1834. They include (among many subjects) regulations for salt mines, imports, levies on products such as alcohol, as well as procedures for consistency with the population’s census.
Historical Notes: The Colombian government enacted a number of measures from 1832 to 1838 with the goal of increasing its tax revenues. Customs duties were the principal source of revenues for the country followed by taxation on alcohol. The measures were instituted to control contraband and other forms of fraud that affected these revenue streams. Junguito, Roberto 2010 Las finanzas públicas del siglo XIX.
