MOSCOW, May 31 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov supported the idea of holding parliamentary hearings on the tax system in February before the government discusses this issue.
The idea was earlier put forth by First Deputy Duma Speaker Alexander Zhukov. “I think that the main parameters of the tax policy will be discussed earlier, every February, and I think such a decision will be adopted, so that the government could hear the opinions of all interested parties when determining the main guidelines,” Zhukov said.
“In fact, the government has already discussed the main guidelines for the tax policy, and we agree with Alexander Dmitriyevich [Zhukov] that this issue should be discussed with the parliament at parliamentary hearings before the government considers it, because it is the parliament that makes the final decision on changes to the tax system,” Siluanov said.
Deputy Minister of Economic Development Stanislav Voskresensky supported his stance. He believes that tax hearings in February are necessary in order to “identify arguable points once again”.
