Russia proposed to raise taxes for the rich to 24%

Graduate School Specialists economics propose to increase tax rates on non-invested funds of wealthy Russians and free corporate income in the Russian Federation to 24 percent - the HSE announced such an initiative in its opinion on the draft federal budget of the Russian Federation for the next year, as well as for the planned 2022-2023.

In the conclusion, it is emphasized that the current level of functioning of the tax authorities, as well as the potential of Russia's foreign economic relations, reduce the likelihood of withdrawing funds to foreign offshore zones from the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation. This makes it possible to increase the tax rate on non-invested income of individuals and legal entities.

HSE experts are in favor of raising the tax burden to 24 percent for those who have an income of more than 12 million rubles and 24 million rubles annually, as well as setting the return tax rate on profits at 24 or even 30 percent with an effective investment deduction.

Economists believe that in the near future the emphasis on tax collection from the payroll will be shifted towards rent payments, excise taxes and funds received in the process of deoffshorization of the Russian economy.

This undoubtedly deserves a positive assessment.

    It is not necessary to raise taxes for the rich at once, it is necessary to raise taxes gradually, by 1-2% per year, then there will be no indignation and no tax evasion ... Sometimes tax decisions in the Russian Federation look upside down, in comparison with world practice, why?

    This is offered all the time.
    BUT! Putin does not give up his own!
    And he regularly hacks down the idea, and sometimes even explains why ...

    By the way, I saw that in Norway and so on, the poor do not pay at all, or pay almost no taxes. Like 1200 euros there is a non-payment level, 110 thousand rubles for our money, I don't remember exactly ..

    Stupid proposal. Who is this rate for? This is a relatively narrow stratum, mainly the largest businessmen, officials, deputies of the State Dura, senators, and Putin and the government.
    For example, Putin will pay, but the rest of the gang will do everything to get away from the predatory rate according to various schemes, as it has been in the past.
    All this has already passed, but history teaches only that it teaches nothing.

    By increasing taxes on wealthy citizens, they cut the branch on which all apparatchiks sit and social peace in the state is based.
