The State Duma in the first reading adopted amendments to the tax code. The deputies plan to introduce relief on the payment of personal income tax for incentive payments under the programs "Zemsky Doctor" and "Zemsky Doctor". According to the initiative, compensation payments for doctors and teachers who decide to work in the regions of the Far North and the Far East will not be considered income.

New measures of social support may be laid down in the Tax Code, the press service of the State Duma. Earlier, compensation payments of more than one million rubles were taxed by personal income tax on an equal basis with other incomes, now they want to cancel it: the compensation payments received from the beginning of 2020 by doctors and teachers will no longer be taxed 13%.

Earlier, the Russian government approved additional funding for the payment of doctors. In total, Far Eastern doctors will receive about 80 million rubles incentive allowances.
