Russian authorities to publish blacklists of tax dodgers
MOSCOW, December 6 - RAPSI. The Russian authorities will submit proposals to the government before April 2013 to post blacklists of Russian tax dodgers who are two months or more overdue with their tax payments, according to a PRIME news agency report.
The list would then be published on the Federal Tax Service's website and distribute the information through the media.
The Finance Ministry, the Economic Development Ministry and the Federal Tax Service have been made responsible for this.
The plan has been approved by the resolution posted on the government's website on Thursday morning.
The plan reads that the bill should stipulate the publication of a list of individuals who have not paid their taxes (levies, penalties, fines and interest) within two months after the due term had expired.
By the end of 2012, the Federal Financial Monitoring Service, the Finance Ministry, the Economic Development Ministry and the Federal Tax Service, with the participation of the Bank of Russia, must submit a number of bills to the government on this issue.
In addition, the Finance Ministry, the Economic Development Ministry and the Federal Tax Service must work through measures aimed at combating tax evasion with the use of offshore jurisdictions in late 2013.
