The Federal tax service will not totally control the Bank accounts of Russians and impose taxes on the funds received on the card. Citizens who receive income from which no tax is paid, must themselves declare and pay personal income tax, said RIA Novosti Deputy head of the control Directorate of the Federal Konstantin Novoselov.

Representative FNS has commented in social networks spread information that from 1 July the tax office will be able to track money transfers of citizens from card to card, to request from citizens the information about why and for what purpose the transfer has been made.

«The right to request information about the movement of funds on accounts of natural persons, including cards, we have long – since 1 July 2014. However, such a request may be made only if the individuals that inspected and with the consent of the higher tax authority. For example, if we have information that the citizen is engaged in illegal business and receives income. Or if this fact was revealed during the audit of the company or its counterparties,» — said Novoselov.

«This applies mainly to income on a large scale, situations with illegal cashing of funds schemes of tax evasion and other», — he said.

Old new rules

FNS representative recalled that from 1 June this year, has really entered into force amendments to article 86 of the Tax code, under which the IRS may request banks information on accounts of physical persons opened in the precious metals. «No new powers from 1 July in this part of the tax authorities is not given,» he said.

Moreover, even if the scope of the audit, the tax authorities will find in the accounts of the citizens some money, it does not mean that they will automatically be assessed the tax.

«Not always money coming in card individuals, you can automatically recognize revenue. Even if the test a person we get regular information about applying for a card cash to collect sales tax, we would first have to prove that the income received from entrepreneurial activities,» — said Novoselov. In this case the citizens by default does not have to prove the origin of funds. To gather evidence, the tax authorities will have.

Unscrupulous businessmen who are caught in the audit, too, by the way, will not pay tax on the whole amount on the card. «For such a citizen will be able to take into account the related costs, and only in this case it is possible to determine the tax base, which must be calculated and paid tax,» – said the representative of the FTS.

Of course, individuals – entrepreneurs, as well as in certain cases the citizens do not have the status of entrepreneurs, in the prescribed manner themselves have to declare their income and pay their taxes. This order is set by the Tax code.

All mixed up

That no changes in this part of the legislation has not paid, and Bank account and card the Russians will not be totally controlled, RIA Novosti confirmed in the largest retail banks.

The head of Sberbank German Gref said earlier that he is not aware of any intentions of the state to amend the regulation of personal payments. The authors of this «news», in his words, accidentally or intentionally all mixed up.

In Bank «Opening», the Agency confirmed that recent changes to the Tax code, which entered into force on 1 June of the current year, are irrelevant to the control of money transfers of citizens from card to card, and applied to the control of accounts in precious metals.

Such accounts from the point of view of tax control now, compared to conventional Bank accounts. For example, if a person has large debts on taxes, his Bank account can be levied. But if funds for its rouble or foreign currency accounts will be insufficient to repay the debt to the state, you can recover and metal accounts.
