Russian authorities several years ago conceived the transition to a unified real estate tax, tied to its market value. It will replace the land tax and personal property tax. Under the new law a tax on real estate will be charged with a market value of the property. Why is this done? The cost of apartments and houses on the property market varies greatly when it comes to facilities in different parts of the city. Under the new tax owners Real Estate in the heart of Russian cities will pay more than they do now.
But the benefits of the tax may well get those who live far from the elite urban areas, because there the cost of housing will be significantly lower than in center. According to the draft Ministry of Finance, the base rate will be determined at the federal level, and preliminary data is 0.1% of property value. Assess the facilities will be employed by professional regions appraisers. According to officials, with the introduction of the new law the total tax burden should not rise. However, in the bill a lot of controversial issues. After the new tax should be paid specifically by each individual – the owner of any property. And here is irrelevant or old oligarch is collecting the funeral of his pension.
The basis of calculation of property tax that we pay today, founded the so-called inventory value of the property. The market price is significantly different. For example, the inventory value of the large two-bedroom apartments in Rostov-on-Don, may well amount to 1 million rubles, but the market for this price, you will not find an apartment. And it will cost at least 3 million rubles, or even more. Officials justify their actions by the fact that in many cities of Russia for a long time people with good incomes, have built houses for themselves, the cost of which amounts to tens or even hundreds of millions. That's something they'll have, say, to fork out. The most important thing – to replenish the treasury. But let's think about why interest because we have studied in school? If I personally now pay tax on property in the amount of 600-700 rubles, thanks to the new law, I have to pay much more. In Rostov-on-Don, the cost of 1 sq. km. m. of housing stock in the secondary is 57 thousand rubles. Consequently, with a meter I have to pay 57 rubles. We multiply the meter … but suddenly the price of housing in my area grow? At that price, which is now kept in quadrature in the Khrushchev, thanks to the new law, I'll pay 2,000 rubles, and I think that this is not the limit. In Currently, many who own property, pay the personal property tax. The calculus of this tax is regulated by a large number of regulations. But, as noted by lawyers, often these acts conflict with the Internal Revenue Code. In my opinion, in our country, property taxes should not be administered without differentiation of the income. Because there will be some people who simply can not contain it. It would be nice also enter the record for which the person owns one or another of the property. It is also necessary to take into account the social composition of households. Otherwise, the consequences of introducing such a charge can be unpredictable. So far, only one consolation, that fully intend to take the bill at the end of 2012, and put it into practice only in 2013. Maxim Chuev.
