Medvedev recalled that a special tax regime is already in place in Moscow, the Moscow region, Tatarstan and the Kaluga region.
“In the near future it is proposed to extend this experience to other regions, since this is the easiest income tax to declare, which should not change,” he said at a cabinet meeting.
Earlier, the speaker of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, proposed to extend the tax on self-employed to all of Russia. According to her, the corresponding experiment is successful in selected regions, therefore, a special tax regime could be introduced from next year already in the whole country.
Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov proposed defining a list of professions where you can use the tax regime for the self-employed.
The economist Nikita Maslennikov, head of the Finance and Economics department of the Institute for Contemporary Development, in an interview with Nation News, evaluated the results of pilot projects for self-employed in Russia.
