Luxury tax: now the list is massive vehicles

the Agency has expanded the list of cars that fall in our country under the so-called luxury tax. High rate of vehicle tax now be imposed on cars that do not consider luxurious even by the producers themselves.

In Russia, officially recognized as a luxury car with a price of 3 million rubles. Given that the threshold is not increased for a long time, and the prices of new cars rising constantly, the Ministry of industry and trade have to regularly correct the list.

last year was a little tweaked and the scheme of formation of the final tax rate. For example, earlier cars priced from 3 to 5 million rubles were subject to road tax with a factor of 1.5 in the first year of life, and to the third he was down to 1.1, and now to lower the coefficient operates on all the first three years of operation of the vehicle. However, this is unlikely the relief will appease the owners of cars that were suddenly transferred to the category of luxury.

the Rich will pay more: traffic fines to be dependent upon the price of the car.

List of cars from the busy segment – price from 3 to 5 million – has increased by 54 model: now includes 632 car the different versions and configurations. And increased the tax rate now applies, for example, Honda Pilot, top version of the Mazda CX-9, Subaru Outback (2.5-liter, 175-horsepower engine, but the rich equipment) the basic configuration Volkswagen Teramont with two-liter engine, a number of Jeep SUVs including Wrangler artless, and even Toyota Hiace with a manual transmission and cloth interior.

Amendments to the Tax code stipulating the existence of “luxury tax”, entered into force in 2014. According to this principle, the highest – 3 – applies to vehicles with the price from 10 to 15 million rubles under the age of 10 years old and cars more than 15 million and under 20 years of age.
