For an income of R$5,000, for example, the tax is currently R$505.64. With the corrected table, it would be R$378.75. If the simplified deduction is monthly, even without the correction, the tax will be R$263.87. Income of R$7,000, currently taxable at R$1,055.64, would pay R$913.75 with the corrected schedule. With the monthly simplified, you would collect R$671.69.
