This article develops arguments in favor of recomposing the time to maturityof the domestic public bond's debt and presents calcul.ations on the amount of tax required by different terms of payment of that debt, assuming that it is rescheduled. Tv..'O alternatives are presented ~nd evaluated. Alternative one offers a collateral for the principal owed and calculates' the. flow of interest in relation to GDP during the repayment period . Alternative two is based on making.gradual and small down~payments to repay the old debt within a newinstitutional framework. Both alternatives yield a substantial alleviation of the interest burden compared to the present policy. The main conclusion is that with a dollar long-term ·interest rate similar to the ones observed in the international markets -- about 8%~ year -- and a 3% a year GDP growth rate, the domestic public debt could be paid in 20 years if a yearly provision of only 0,6% of GDP is allocated to its payment
