MOSCOW, 16 Oct. The head of the Duma Committee on budget and taxes Andrey Makarov considers that the main directions of tax and budget policy should be introduced in the state Duma not in haste together with the draft Federal budget for 2016, as modified and made before 1 April of the following year, such a possibility can be envisaged either in the law or the government.
The draft Federal budget for next year must be received in the state Duma until October 25. Traditionally made with him to the house for consideration the main directions of tax and budget policy.
Earlier, Deputy Finance Minister Alexei Lavrov said that will be prepared new main directions of budget policy, and the Cabinet of Ministers will consider them at one of the nearest meetings of the government of the Russian Federation.
Makarov said that I would not like to see the draft guidelines for tax policy must be revised because of the short period for their development. “We took the decision to allow the government to develop the state program up to 1 April of the following year. Did not want to as a result of our discussion documents were hastily developed, thrown, approved by the government the main directions of tax and budget policy — and technically all would be reported,” said Makarov to the plenary.
“The right to make any amendment to the law, or similarly the solution of a question on state programs to invite the government to finalize a three-year program and tax, and budget policies and present them simultaneously in the period up to April 1 with the state programs. I think this would be the most reasonable in this situation,” the MP suggested.
In his opinion, together with the draft Federal budget needs to be made to it old principal directions, “because it may not be the main directions of tax and budget policy” when introducing the main estimates. “Whether they will be annual, will they three, that the government should decide this is not our competence”, — said Makarov.
