New Law Raises Transport Tax

The federation council has approved a law raising the transport tax on vehicles with a value of over 3 million rubles ($90,000), Interfax reported.

The law establishes a set of coefficients that will be applied to the base tax to calculate the new rates. For vehicles worth between 3 and 5 million rubles, and between two and three years from their production date, a coefficient of 1.1 will be applied. The coefficient rises according to the value and age of the vehicle, reaching three for vehicles worth of over 15 million rubles that are less than 20 years old.

The new rules will go into force on Jan. 1, 2014.

The list of coefficients will be publicized annually on the Transport Ministry's website.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
