MOSCOW, April 25 (Itar-Tass) – President Vladimir Putin said Thursday he believes that the introduction of a tax on luxury properties is possible.
For instance, this tax should cover luxury cars and have a much stronger moral nature than the fiscal one, Putin said while answering questions on a major nationwide question-time show.
“As for the tax on luxury properties, I’d like to reiterate we must get a tax of the kind,” he said.
Putin said that, more specifically, there is a proposal to increase the basic tax rate for the sold for over 5 million rubles twofold and for cars sold for over 10 million rubles, threefold, Putin said.
