The Investigative Committee of Russia proposes to toughen the criminal liability of individuals.

It’s about tax evasion.

In an interview with the Izvestia newspaper, the deputy chairman of the RF IC Elena Leonenko stated that a legal entity will be responsible for tax evasion in 10 years, while individual entrepreneurs have a statute of limitations for tax crimes only two years.

“Even with the amount of damage over 45 million rubles, an individual entrepreneur can easily avoid punishment in 24 months. <...>… Therefore, we propose to equalize the responsibility for tax evasion “, – said the representative of the TFR.

At the suggestion of the committee, the Federal Tax Service is invited to immediately send materials about debtors and criminal schemes to investigators. Now the FTS is waiting for 2 months – for the debtor to pay his taxes. “It is during these 60 days that documentation can be destroyed, property removed,” Leonenko said.
