In 2017, the state must set up the tax system. On Thursday, 1 December, said the President of Russia Vladimir Putin in the message to the Federal Assembly, the correspondent of “Tape.ru”.

The head of state has put before Parliament the task to consider the proposals for setting up of the tax system, and until 2018 to adopt all the amendments to the Tax code.

The tax system needs to solve the main task — to stimulate business activity, Putin said. “The business community has a request for the extension of economic freedoms necessary for the development of small and medium business”, — he said.

In addition, Putin demanded to ensure the stability of the budget system and its independence from hydrocarbon prices.
