Russian family forced to pay tax on sold apartment for 14 years

A resident of Dzerzhinsk for 14 years has been paying tax on housing sold in 2006

A family in Dzerzhinsk (Nizhny Novgorod region) has been forced into 14 years pay tax on a sold apartment – employees of the Federal Tax Service (FTS) have not yet re-registered the property to new owners. This is reported by the Telegram channel Ni Mash.

The former owner got rid of the apartment back in 2006, having officially sold it. The deal was fully completed, the property passed into the ownership of another person. Nevertheless, for all these years, a woman has been receiving payments from the tax authorities – they demand to pay taxes for housing, to which the Russian woman has nothing to do.

Receipts from the Federal Tax Service are sent every fall. A resident of Dzerzhinsk has repeatedly written complaints to the department, but all claims are allegedly transferred to Moscow, and there they are lost. “It is impossible to cut or not pay this tax, otherwise fines or legal proceedings will be applied,” the Russian woman complains.

Russians can find out the cadastral value of housing in their personal accounts on the FTS website or on the Rosreestr website. You can challenge it in a special regional commission or in court. Kirill Kulakov, chairman of the committee on cadastral valuation and challenging the cadastral valuation of Soyuz SOO, said earlier that the tax on apartments in Russia is growing more slowly than real estate prices.
