So, I understand that now if you have more than 20,000 pesos go through your bank account in a month then you get 'taxed' 2% of anything over that by the bank. If someone pays me and I pay someone else and they pay someone else etc etc eventually there will be nothing left. And the banks, at least banamex, wont change $US directly into cash now you give them the notes and they pay the pesos in to your account. Surely, this just encourages people to keep large sums of cash at home, which is no good for the banks who have less on deposit and great for burglars who have a better chance of scoring high. What on earth is this all about? Is this a Govt thing or a bank thing? and does anyone have any suggestions as to creative ways of bringing a reasonably large sum of money into the country from abroad which doesnt involve depositing it in a bank account?
