Lutsk City Council will appeal to the People’s Deputies of Ukraine to initiate the submission of the draft Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine”.
The deputies considered the draft decision on the relevant appeal during the 26th session of the Lutsk City Council.
Deputies of Lutsk City Council stressed that they are aware of the responsibility of community residents for creating the necessary conditions for comfortable and safe living, so they can not ignore the issue of existing loss of community budget revenues provided by current legislation.
“The essence of the problem lies in the significant gaps in the current tax legislation in terms of administration of taxes and fees belonging to local budgets, collection authorities. Property tax revenues in the structure of the local budget’s own revenues account for almost a quarter of revenues and are the main resource for financing social expenditures and community development expenditures, ”the appeal reads.

At the same time, it is emphasized that the administration of property taxes by the State Tax Service is inefficient. Despite the statutory obligation of property taxpayers to provide the control authorities with information on changes in their data (for example, in the case of a change of residence), a significant number of residents do not comply with it. Therefore, almost a quarter of payment reports of the tax authority do not reach the recipients of taxpayers.
The reason for this situation is the lack of access of the State Tax Service to the database of the Unified State Demographic Register.

We ask you to submit to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine a draft Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine”, which should provide that the change of place of registration is carried out automatically in accordance with the Unified State Demographic Register, “- said in a statement.
Deputies supported the draft decision.
