Tax relief

Perm Regional Duma deputy Andrey Agishev spoke against tax privileges at the last Duma session. Since 2006 locally registered businesses are able to get a 4% income tax relief. While the general Russian level of income tax is 20%, in Perm Region it makes only 16%. Andrey Agishev mentioned this tax privilege costs the region 30 billion rubles.

The accusation was made that the regional authorities became sponsors to big businesses at the expense of common people. Two deputies from the opposition supported the idea to cancel this tax relief. However, 21 deputies were against the offer. As a result, income tax relief is still in effect in Perm Region.
