The tax service expects that additional digital projects will reach hundreds of thousands of people and will save billions of rubles in business
The Federal Tax Service (FTS) has prepared a project to launch new digital products that will simplify the payment of taxes. In particular, we are talking about the development of a certification center (CA) for issuing qualified electronic signature certificates to legal entities, individual entrepreneurs and notaries, Kommersant reports.
The Federal Tax Service expects that already in 2022 the center will process 100% of the relevant requests, and the business will be able to save about $ 144 billion on this. In addition, the centralization of the issuance of a qualified electronic signature will simplify the tax authorities to maintain a unified and up-to-date register of electronic signatures.
The ministry estimated that the creation of the CA infrastructure on the basis of the Federal Tax Service data centers would cost $ 280 million, and the development of interactive services for the service under the project would cost $ 60 million.
The next project is the service of a simplified procedure for the deduction of personal income tax through the personal account of the taxpayer. It is estimated that in 2021 about 900 thousand people will be covered by this service (about 10% of the number of applicants minus a year). Kommersant points out that due to various problematic issues (insufficient number of employees of the Federal Tax Service and lack of readiness of banks for electronic information cooperation), it is only supposed to work out practice until 2022 without expanding the deduction system itself.
The third draft – a simplified procedure for registering individual entrepreneurs – will require amendments to the relevant paragraph of the law. It is planned that in December about 10 thousand individuals will be able to register through the mobile application of the online service “Personal Account of the Taxpayer for Individuals”, and next year this figure will increase to 150 thousand.
