Tax on income from deposits approved in the State Duma
Deputies in the third reading passed a law introducing a 13% tax on deposit income. According to experts, the state will receive about 100 billion rubles of additional income.
According to the State Duma press service, a 13% tax rate will be applied to interest earned on deposits from one million rubles. Interest on ruble deposits with a yield of not more than 1% per year will not be taxed.
As specified by the chairman of the budget and tax committee Andrei Makarov, a mechanism is provided that provides a tax deduction. According to him, if the law came into force today, the deduction would be equal to 62,5 thousand rubles. That is, income in the form of 62,5 thousand rubles will not be taxed, and 13% will be deducted only from that income that is higher than this amount.
According to experts channel "Rain", the deposit market in Russia is estimated at 31 trillion rubles. At the same time, 55% of deposits fall under a new tax - their amount is more than one million rubles. Thus, the state revenue from tax will amount to 110 billion rubles.
