Ministry of Finance: the tax burden on Russians is one of the lowest in the world

The Ministry of Finance has published an official position on the tax burden of Russians. According to the department, the country has one of the lowest tax rates in the world.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Finance, personal income tax rates in Russia have practically not changed for many years and are 13% and 15% - but only for those whose income is more than five million rubles a year. This means that the majority of Russians will not be affected. In other countries, taxes from citizens' incomes reach 35%.

The department also noted that for Russians there are many tax deductions, which are aimed at social support of the population. With their help, you can reduce the tax burden when paying for treatment, education and other necessary needs.

Also, in recent years, with the help of technology and information services, it has been possible to reduce the administrative costs of taxpayers. In particular, they simplified and accelerated the mechanisms for obtaining tax deductions and benefits, as well as paying taxes. Such measures allowed not to increase the tax burden on citizens and to create the most comfortable conditions.

Yesterday VTsIOM published the results of a survey on how Russians assess the size of taxes. About 36% said that Russian taxes are excessive, however, only 65% ​​of citizens could name the personal income tax rate.
