Only 41% of Crimeans enjoy the right to receive a tax deduction
41% of Crimeans enjoy the right to a tax deduction, another 38% know about the possibility of returning the paid personal income tax, but do not use it. Representatives of the economically active population took part in surveys of the SuperJob search service for highly paid jobs.
The State Duma adopted a law on increasing social tax deductions for personal income tax for education and treatment. Today, 41% of Crimeans use the opportunity to receive a tax deduction. 38% are aware of this right but do not use it. The main reasons why citizens do not process tax deductions are the difficulty in collecting supporting documents, lack of time and lack of understanding of the procedure for filing a tax return. Almost every fifth person (21%) has never heard of the possibility to return the personal income tax paid to the treasury— noted in the press service of the service.
Those who exercise their right to a tax deduction are more among women (53% versus 36% among the representatives of the stronger sex), and those who are not informed about it are among men (25% versus 16% among women). The higher the income of respondents, the more often they use the possibility of returning personal income tax: if among those surveyed who earn less than 50 thousand rubles, 36% do this, then among those whose income exceeds 80 thousand rubles, already 52%. The maximum number of those who are not aware of the right to a tax deduction is among citizens under the age of 34 (27%).
Meanwhile, filing a tax return is easier than it seems: those who have done it rate the complexity of the procedure at an average of 2.5 points on a 5-point scale, while those with no such experience at 3.9. Citizens who filed a tax return most often filled it out on their own: 60% of respondents reported this. 16% resorted to the help of relatives, friends and acquaintances, 24% of respondents used the services of professional consultants.
