The FAS deems it appropriate to cancel the transport tax in connection with the increase in excise duties
We are talking about amendments to the Tax code of the Russian Federation. As explained Mironov, “the current tax system in the transportation industry fair as you can get”. “Many of those who took the discussion to the adoption of the law on indexation of excise taxes on fuel, was guided by the principle of “pay when you go”. Speaking even easier, lost income from the cancellation of the transport tax planned to be included in the cost of the excise tax on fuel. Only here was all very strange: the fuel price is raised, and the vehicle tax repeal forgot. Go – go pay and no – pay”, – said the leader of “Fair Russia”.
According to Mironov, it is necessary to “put an end to this injustice”. “And we are not alone in their intention. For the abolition of the transport tax in November 2012 was supported by the President Vladimir Putin and the Ministry of transport of the Russian Federation supported the proposal to cancel it in 2016,” said spravoross. In his words, in the case of adoption of law will prevail, the principle of “pay when you go”. “While unscrupulous and “forgetful” officials willing to be paid for cheating, must be forever deprived of such opportunity”, – concluded the Deputy.
