Errors in tax notifications: how not to pay extra
Every year, all homeowners pay property taxes. It happens that the amounts are calculated with errors. How to act in such cases?
And the first place among the errors in taxation is the incorrect calculation of the cadastral value of real estate. Therefore, the owners should be alerted by a sharp increase in the tax. And before asking questions to the service, it is better to check on your personal page or on the IFNS website which database was used in the calculation. The fact is that the coefficients of ownership periods have changed not so long ago. Now, for example, after three years from the moment of cadastral valuation, the tax increases annually by only 10%, instead of 20%.
Sometimes the tax service forgets about the mandatory deduction. And the owner of several real estate objects may not know that he is entitled to such a payment for each object that he owns.
If the time of registration of the right does not coincide with the period of ownership of housing, situations with incorrect tax calculation may also arise. It is important to remember here that from 2020, the moment of ownership in a new building will not be considered the time of registration of ownership, but the date of payment for real estate. In addition, employees of the department may not take into account the benefits that some taxpayers rely on.
So, in order not to overpay, you do not need to postpone resolving issues with the tax service.
And also remember that it is normal to challenge decisions in the IFNS independently. No special knowledge is required here. It is only necessary to have information: to know your rights and be sure to attach documents to the explanatory letter. It is better to contact the inspector through your personal account, all correspondence is saved there.
But in difficult cases, you can not do without the help of specialists.
