Resumen

The situation of socioeconomic vulnerability in the context of the pandemic by COVID-19 resumed
the discourse on basic income. In a scenario of financial recession, Brazil does not seem to have the
resources to pay for this assistance policy. With a bibliographic and quantitative research, the work
seeks to analyze the proposal for the taxation of electronic commerce as a potential sponsor of basic
income, since it is presented as a measure capable of compensating for the social inequalities
aggravated by the Austerity Policy. It was noted that, despite the legislative initiatives, the taxation of
electronic commerce is not something simple, but it involves a wide range of services and
technological products that do not contain a legal provision and fall in normative lagoons. The Tax
Reform seems right to unify taxation by using electronic commerce, but there is something to be
desired when it is restricted to federal taxes and because it does not present a hypothesis of clear
impact.
