Dialogue with High Commissioner. Taxes and duties

Taxes from time immemorial have been regarded as a steady instrument for the mobilization of public revenues and precisely the timely receipt of tax payments to the budget ensures pensions, allowances, subsidies. But sometimes…

Citizen Sh. approached me with an appeal concerning illegal tax collection. As it follows from the materials provided, the court order was issued against her to recover the tax debt. However, Sh. claimed that she did not have obligations to pay tax on property of individuals, since she was a senior citizen and accordingly had a tax privilege.

According to the results of the examination of the applicant’s appeal, I adressed a letter to the Interregional Tax Inspectorate No. 4 in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area. As a result of the recalculation, the tax debt was significantly reduced.

We also were able to help an applicant from Moscow. Citizen B. did not agree with the decision of the competent body that refused her a property tax deduction in connection with the acquisition of an apartment in 2015.

Having acquainted with the materials, I submitted a request to the Federal Tax Service of Russia in Moscow. According to the results of the desk audit, a decision was made to refuse to bring citizen B. to responsibility for committing the tax offense. In addition, on the basis of this decision, the tax inspection confirmed the applicant’s right to receive a property tax deduction and calculated the amount of tax to be returned.

I find it necessary to pay more attention to enlightening the Russians in such a difficult area as payment of taxes and their calculation.
