The Accounts Chamber (JV) of Russia has found ways to increase tax collection from citizens. They are listed in the materials published on website departments.
After analyzing the tax potential of the budgets of Russian regions, the Accounts Chamber came to the conclusion that it is not being fully implemented. Auditor of the Chamber Andrei Baturkin noted that now there are unequal conditions for determining the tax base for the same types of real estate, depending on their ownership, which leads to a violation of the principle of fair taxation.
In this regard, the joint venture believes that the property tax rate for companies should be calculated based on the cadastral value of all property objects, and not selectively. In addition, taxation can involve participants in the shared ownership of land plots, the share of which is expressed in hectares or so-called ballo-hectares.
Also, the JV believes, the involvement of informally employed and unemployed persons in the economic turnover will contribute to an increase in revenues both from personal income tax (PIT) and other types of taxes. As other ways to increase tax revenues, the Accounts Chamber named the improvement of tax administration and the reconciliation of information about real estate in the databases of the Federal Tax Service and Rosreestr.
Earlier, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said that the Russian authorities do not plan to change personal income tax in the next three years. The minister also said that the Ministry of Finance does not intend to change the size of personal income tax for the rich. According to Siluanov’s estimates, the big billionaires will find a way to avoid paying taxes, and the middle class will suffer primarily from the lost money.
At the end of September, it became known about the plans of the Ministry of Finance to oblige citizens working in Russian companies abroad remotely to pay taxes. According to the current legislation, in order to obtain the status of a tax resident of Russia, a citizen must stay in the country for at least 183 days during the last year. Otherwise, employees of Russian companies pay taxes in the country where they spend most of their time.
