The unified register of incomes of Russians will show their power as the palm

Data on incomes of Russians will gather in a special register of the Federal tax service (FTS). The system will be able to establish connections between citizens and draw conclusions about the welfare of the family. The creation of a common database approved in the second reading the state Duma. The register will contain 30 types of information from 12 government agencies. So the authorities will get the “Golden ideal profile” of the person. Every Russian “at a glance” from the state. Understand, to whom and why.

Authorities are planning to collect all the information about the citizen in the unified registry. It will contain all the official information: passport data, property, INN, SNILS, place of work and others. Population build up will be the Federal tax service. The array data will be stored on the servers of the data Center on. The formation of the information resource should be completed by 2025. As planned, it will get access to state agencies and the citizens themselves. It is expected that with the establishment of such a register is half-reduced error and fraud in the procedures of taxation, the Russians do not have to go from one Agency to the other for references.

meanwhile, the Deputy head of FNS Vitaly Kolesnikov said that a single register will determine the income of each household, as the system will allow you to establish family ties. With the help of this approach, according to Kolesnikov, it is possible “to put any controls, any thresholds and provide the assistance that will be needed.” Simply put, having data about family income, rather than a specific person, the government can decide what kind of help this family needs and does. The deputies of the profile Committee on information policy, welcomed the bill. According to the head of the Committee Alexander Khinshtein, in terms of coronavirus infection “such a law is not enough.”

“When discussing the purpose of creating a Single Federal information resource sounds task is to obtain data about every citizen, but on the household – to increase the validity of the distribution of social support.

System information on the population for such purposes for a long time and successfully operate abroad – in Sweden, Belgium, France, Argentina, and other countries. But objectively, today, with the existing relatively low level of real incomes in our country, to identify the real needs of social assistance according to family income?”, – asks the Professor of the Department of Finance and prices of REU them. G. V. Plekhanova Elena Voronkova.

the creation of the register does not mean increased control or surveillance of every citizen of the state. It will contain available information that is just in one place. But since the initiative comes from FTS and talking about the income of civilan, this can not but cause concern. The tax will see, for example, that the unemployed person appeared to own an expensive car or property. This will give the authorities a reason to ask the citizen about the source of funds.

In this regard, Elena Voronkova draws attention to the issue of data protection in a single register. “This diverse information about the person, the family is a valuable product, providing great interest for fraud.

it is Envisaged that the national legislation will protect the personal data of the Federal information resource, but the human factor has not been canceled. The sad Russian and foreign experience of leakage of personal information from government databases raise questions about the need to increase measures to keep them confidential,” – said the expert.

information Leakage is a big problem. On the black market for personal database well paying scams that extort money from people under the guise of employees of banks, employees of social services. At the end of last year, a British research company Comparitech reported the data leak on 20 million people from the datacenter on, however, the Russian tax service information is called “provocation.”
