New Survey on De-Risking and a Possible Remittance Tax

The NMTA, in collaboration with Northcoast Research, is starting this survey primarily to take the measure of the MSB banking problem as it applies to money transmitters who send migrant worker remittances, and to obtain feedback on a possible Mexico Remittance Tax. I urge all money transmitter CEOs and Compliance Officers to take the time to fill out this survey. You may stay anonymous but, if you would like the results of the survey emailed to you, you can fill in your email address at the end. Here are the results of the last Survey we did, in April-May, 2015.
