Changes in the taxation system were made in the Amur Region

In Blagoveshchensk, a meeting of the expanded board of the Office of the Federal Tax Service for the Amur Region was held, the press service of the regional administration reports.

First Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Amur Region Vera Shcherbina made a speech at the meeting of the board. She noted that the decline in macroeconomic indicators had a negative impact on the volume of regional budget revenues. The budget for 2015 and the forthcoming three-year period was formed in difficult conditions. Almost all ministries and departments had to cut socially significant expenses. To ensure a balanced budget, it is necessary to use the full potential, including ensuring an increase in revenues.

“The regional government has developed an action plan to increase tax and non-tax revenues and reduce arrears in the consolidated budget of the Amur Region. Its implementation, in active cooperation with the Federal Tax Service of Russia for the Amur Region, will make it possible to switch to pinpoint regulation on the territory of the region of issues of tax return for each ruble of state support for organizations, to launch a mechanism for paying taxes by both legal entities and individuals from the cadastral value of objects, "Vera Georgievna noted. ...

These measures are designed to ensure the fulfillment of social obligations, an increase in wages for public sector employees, an increase in the investment attractiveness of the region, and a way to reduce the deficit.

The work of the regional government in terms of budget revenues is built in several directions. First of all, this is the improvement of tax legislation.

So, since 2014, regional laws came into force, which provided for the abolition of most of the regional tax benefits. Due to their cancellation, the tax potential of the budget increased by 277 million rubles.

Since 2015, corporate income tax has been canceled for investment projects in the type of economic activity "Extraction of ores and sands of precious metals" and benefits for the payment of corporate property tax for the Russian Post. As a result of the cancellation, the budget will receive 140 million rubles.

Another important point is the improvement of property taxes in connection with the transition to payment based on the cadastral value of objects.

Since 2015, restrictions on the area of ​​shopping centers (500 square meters) will be lifted, the tax base for which is determined as the cadastral value. The list of real estate was also expanded, in respect of which the tax base is determined as the cadastral value. In addition, from January 1, 2015, the tax on property of individuals will be determined based on the cadastral value of taxable items.

In addition, in the Amur Region, amendments have been made to the Law of the Amur Region "On the patent system of taxation in the territory of the Amur Region". The size of the potential possible annual income has been increased.

A differentiating coefficient has been introduced, taking into account the territory of validity of patents by groups of municipalities. This will allow taxpayers located far from the regional center, primarily working in rural areas, and having a lower annual income, to pay for a patent in a smaller amount.

In connection with the reduction in income tax from the profit tax to the regional budget in the amount of 1,2 billion rubles, a lot of joint work of the regional government and federal tax authorities is to increase the collection of other taxes.

An assessment was made of the lack of interaction between local government bodies and interdistrict tax inspectorates to increase local tax revenues.

Indeed, very often small businesses underestimate retail space, there are questions about updating and verifying databases on property taxes. Many questions are related to the reduction of the shadow economy. Therefore, the increase in the revenues of the budgetary system fully depends on the overall efforts of the regional government, federal structures and local self-government bodies.

At the meeting, the First Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Amur Region Vera Shcherbina was presented with a registration card that provides access to the Internet service of the Federal Tax Service of Russia. This allows individuals to pay property taxes electronically. This service is available to every citizen. The number of taxpayers using it increases every year.
