Aleksei Semenov: Federal Tax Service’s Mission Is to Make Communication of Citizens with Tax Authorities Simpler

Krasnodar, 31 January – Yug Times. Aleksei Semenov, Head of the Federal Tax Service’s Directorate in the Krasnodar region, recounts the results of the year 2018 and tells about the new reforms.

Q.: Have the tax results of the year 2018 been reviewed yet?

A.: Yes. In 2018, the Krasnodar region paid 346 billion roubles in taxes, fees and other mandatory payments to the federal budget. The revenues grew by 7.8 billion roubles, or 2.3%. It allowed the regional tax directorate to fulfil the set plans as regards all levels of the budget.

Q.: Which taxes are the main sources of budget revenues in the Krasnodar region?

A.: The biggest share falls on the individual income tax. It accounts for 36.7% of the receipts. The share of the profits tax is 24.8%, that of the property taxes is 24.4%, and of special [tax] regimes is 10/4%.

Q.: Do many companies in the Kuban region try to hide their tax reports?

A.: The regional tax authorities uncovered more than 89,000 companies and private entrepreneurs that failed to present their tax reports. We are working with this category of taxpayers; namely, we organise activities to induce persons to declare their tax liabilities.

Q.: What novelties will Russian taxpayers expect in 2019?

A.: It is worth noting that the Platon [electronic toll collection] system [applied to trucks over 12 tons] was cancelled on January 1, 2019. It means that now the transport tax cannot be reduced by the sum of the toll collected from heavyweight trucks. The second novelty is the increased VAT (from 18% to 20%). The third novelty is that the payers of the unified agricultural tax were acknowledged as VAT payers.

Q.: Where can companies and physical person learn the news in the tax sphere?

A.: All actual changes in the tax legislation are placed on the official website of the Federal Tax Service. Besides, we are working on improving our electronic services and opening new ones. All these factors help us fulfil the tasks set on our agency – including informing about valid tax laws, improving tax literacy, and reducing the administrative load on businesses.
