FNS will not penalize self-employed for tax evasion in 2019

The Federal tax service during the year does not plan to penalize self-employed for tax evasion in connection with the introduction of a new tax regime for this category of citizens. This was announced by the head of the Department Mikhail Mishustin at the meeting with Vladimir Putin.


“I want to refrain from fines in order to watch for the year, how this situation will be used self-employed,” — said Mishustin in the conversation with the President. He promised to report to the head of state, “about all the nuances to be found”, reports RIA Novosti.

Vladimir Putin approved the proposal. Mishustin stressed that the new regime will not increase the tax burden, and will be one of the opportunities for self-employed taxpayers.

On 15 November the state Duma adopted in the third final reading a package of laws designed experiment for the self-employed. Mode “a tax on professional income” means reducing the tax burden on bona fide self-employed people from 13% to 4%. If services are not physical persons, and legal, the tax rate will be 6%.

The experiment will be conducted in Moscow, the Moscow and Kaluga areas, and also in the Republic of Tatarstan from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2028. It can take part self-employed Russians, whose income does not exceed 200 thousand rubles per month or 2.4 million per year.
