The International Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development is studying the experience of tax "digitalization" in Russia and other countries

    The head of the Federal Tax Service, Mikhail Mishustin, will present a report on e-tax administration at the seminar of the forum on tax administration (FTA) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It will be held in Moscow. Mr. Mishustin will talk about the Russian experience in introducing electronic tax services.

    Participants in the two-day seminar will be representatives of tax authorities in Australia, most jurisdictions of the European Union, China, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, South Africa, New Zealand, as well as corporate structures - Teradata, Accenture and EY teams. Russia is not yet a member of the OECD, but is negotiating accession. But Russia is a member of the FTA, and the working group on electronic services is headed by the head of the service, Mikhail Mishustin.

    The FTA is on the agenda with the development of personalized tax administration services and the strategy of integrating electronic tax services into integrated government services. The United Kingdom actively advocates the unification of all public services, as it has successful experience in this. In Canada, they plan to create a single portal for more than a hundred departments.

    The task of the FTA in this case is to analyze and generalize the experience of different countries. For example, a tendency towards conservativeness and lack of activity of taxpayers when using electronic tax services was revealed.

    Yesterday, July 5, Megamind wrotethat in Russia measures have been taken to increase the interest of Russians in electronic public services. One such measure is a 30 percent reduction in state duty on these services. It was proposed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

    Last year, Russia was one of the twenty European leaders in the degree of introduction of electronic public services. Since 2012, it has been included in the top 30 of the UN ranking on the development of electronic public services. As for the choice of the method of customer identification of electronic tax services, there is no single solution. In Russia, an “enhanced” digital signature is used for this. However, in most countries the identification system is much weaker.

    Recently, the practice of using social networks for the general informing of taxpayers is relevant. In this sense, the experience of the Netherlands is noteworthy. There, social networks are also used for monitoring, since tax authorities can find out some facts of interest to users from their user accounts, Kommersant reports .
