The Ministry of Finance has suggested to impose an ecological tax — Rambler News Service


The Ministry of Finance has drafted several amendments to the Tax Code which provide transformation of a payment for negative impact on the environment to an economic tax, the document placed on the portal of drafts of legal regulations demonstrates. The purpose of the project is inclusion in the code of non-tax payments which have quasitax character, that is have no legal signs of a tax. Now norms on a payment for negative impact on the environment are stated in the federal law on environmental protection. The amount of a payment depends on volume or a lot of emissions. The Ministry of Finance has noted low efficiency of collection of this payment. At the same time in the explanatory note to the document it is noted that in some countries similar payments are already raised in a type of tax.

The project of the Ministry of Finance has to record tax rates for emission of the polluting means and placement of industrial and consumption waste. Department is convinced that introduction of an economic tax will increase receipts in the federal budget. In case of acceptance the new law will come into force on January 1, 2020.
