The Motor Vehicle Tax (TVM) was already known to any owner of motor vehicles with at least 4 wheels intended for the private transport of people or goods. As for public transport vehicles for people or goods, their owners were used to the Synthetic Professional Tax for Road Transporters (TPS-TR). Likewise, company vehicles were subject to a tax called the Company Vehicle Tax (TVS). From now on, all these three taxes bear a single denomination: TVM .
