Sverdlovsk officials behind $90 million in personal, property taxes
Regional employees and officials of the Russian government enjoy certain tax benefits, but they are not entirely exempt from paying income and property taxes, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.
A recent audit found that many regional officials simply refuse to pay their income taxes.
As of December 2013, tax collecting agencies in the Sverdlovsk region sent more than 360,000 notices to employees of the regional government indicating that they owed taxes. At that time, only 34,000 responded to the notice by paying their back taxes, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta.
Currently, the largest lump sum of back taxes owed by a single individual in the Sverdlovsk region is $23,000.
