The Minister of labour and social protection Maxim Topilin believes that the collection of non-working citizens, often called in the media “tax parasites”, can be set in the amount of 20 thousand rubles.
“Let’s assume that the person is legally employed, when he paid income tax. For the year, if you count it with the minimum wage, would amount to 11.7 thousand rubles. If the person is “in the shadow”, for his contribution to the health insurance Fund pays the subject of the Russian Federation. On average in the regions of 8-9 thousand for a total of 20 thousand a year, to get started,” he said.
“I think 20 thousand is fine, even enough,” added labor Minister.
The purpose of the tax, the Minister called for the identification of people receiving a “black” wages, without explaining, however, as, for instance, officials will feature running, but not registered by labour, the unemployed or unemployed Housewives.
We will remind, on September 28, Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets said that the Ministry began drafting a bill that would force non-residents of the country to pay for the use of clinics and hospitals.
The Finance Ministry supported the idea, and the Minister of healthcare Veronika Skvortsova said that the Agency opposed the elimination of non-working population from the MMI system, but takes the position that “everything should be fair”.
Against this approach were made by the Ministry of economic development: is there statedthat the government must withdraw entrepreneurs from the shadows and more precisely to register the self-employed. Also, the Ministry assured the public that the idea if being discussed, the “slow mode”.
According to the head of the Federation Council Committee on social policy Valery Ryazan, the amount of funds that the state plans to offset the expense of the contributions from the officially unemployed able-bodied citizens, is 42-45 billion rubles a year, since this is approximately the amount estimated expenses of regional budgets for medical care of unemployed citizens.
In early October, the newspaper “life” revealed that officials took the proposal to “tax parasites” with considerable enthusiasm. Ministries and departments want to introduce it as soon as possible due to the shortage that occurred in the Federal Fund of obligatory medical insurance (FFOMS).
The development of the bill involved in the Federation Council and in the six departments. The reform is planned to establish a different order of payment of insurance premiums for Russians of different age, will reduce the list of preferential payers of insurance premiums.
The tax authorities and the mandatory medical insurance Fund, according to the newspaper, has started a total inspection of Russians who is working and who is not. From 2017 it the tax office will administer the payments in FFOMS, and she needs to deal with the base.
According to the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on budget and financial markets Sergey ryabukhina, the first reconciliation has been completed, and according to the labor Ministry, the number of persons who are not receiving income from employment, from among the able-bodied population amounted to 16.4 million This roughly corresponds to previous estimates of the size of the shadow labour market.
