State Duma Deputy from United Russia Sergei Vostretsov proposed to make Russian Housewives to pay taxes as self-employed. About the MP said “Rosbalt”.
He said that this issue was discussed a year and a half ago. “28 million people the Ministry can’t find, they are somewhere in the air. Do they have children there, was no, not they move? So let’s look after them!” said Vostretsov.
According to him, after the adoption of the law on self-employed they have used only 20 thousand people. The Deputy noted that these people do not belong to any social category, but “the worker in the clinic, they first crammed”. “And then we wonder why doctors and teachers salaries are small! And why they are great, if a third of the population does not pay taxes?” — outraged Vostretsov.
He stressed that Russia needs a progressive tax scale, and it’s not that the rich paid more. “What’s the point to increase the tax on the rich, if it’s the same as pouring water into a sieve?” the MP said, adding that a third of the population is disrespectful to respectable taxpayers.
First Deputy Chairman of the faction “United Russia” Andrey Isaev in an interview with RIA Novosti explained that the proposal vostretsova — his personal position, similar initiatives of other members do not support. According to him, the faction is wary of the imposition of additional taxes and payments for the citizens, because this topic is serious and even painful.
