“If you have on your account is 1 million rubles, and you get 10% in the Bank, you get 100 thousand rubles a year, the percentage of your contribution. Before these 100 thousand roubles is not taxed, you now have in mind that with a hundred thousand and you pay 13%, i.e. 13 thousand rubles”, – he added.
He also said that “we are talking about one specific account, neither of which the totality of the question”, that is, the tax will be imposed only on interest income from deposits more than 1 million, and those who have money spread out across multiple deposits, each of which is less than this amount, nothing will not have to pay.
