MOSCOW, October 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s 40 million individuals paid online over past three months their overdue taxes, Head of Russia’s Federal Tax Service Mikhail Mishustin told the first meeting of the authority’s Public Council on Wednesday.
Since June 14, 2011, Russian tax payers have an option to pay for their taxes on the site of the Tax Service. This became possible as the service and Sberbank-Online signed a cooperation agreement. Since then, Sberbank-Online served 50,051 payment orders, where overdue 44.7 million roubles were paid for.
Besides, since August 10, taxpayers may use the QIWI Bank service. The bank has serviced over 13,000 payments of almost 5.7 million roubles.
On September 12, Russia’s Federal Tax Service signed a cooperation agreement with another bank – Gazprombank. Since then, the bank has served 1.315 tax payments from consumer clients and organisations worth 682,000 roubles.
The tax service stresses that online tax payments are made with zero commissions.
