BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro said on Monday that his far-right government intends to send to Congress at the start of next month a bill to lower taxes.

“Reducing the tax burden is in our plans, lowering the income tax a little,” Bolsonaro said during a Facebook live broadcast in which he was getting his hair cut.
