How to reduce tax on winnings

You can not pay tax, if the amount is small. FTS employees are unlikely to be interested in a citizen, который заработал 10 000 rubles, несмотря на необходимость совершения оплаты с 4 000 rubles. But when you receive a large sum of money or a valuable prize, whose cost exceeds 4 thousand rubles, do not shy away from having to pay.

Reducing the amount of tax is allowed. for example, когда гражданин выиграл 97 000 rubles, то налоговая база будет с 93 000 rubles, as 4 000 рублей идут взаимозачетом.

Appraisal of an apartment by an employee of an appraisal company

There is another way to lower your payment, if a valuable prize is won. So, you need to contact the appraisal company. Telling the situation in advance, an employee can underestimate the real cost of the object. But strong understatement is not allowed. for example, if the apartment is worth 4 million rubles, then really indicate after the survey, that its market price is 10% below. I.e 3,6 million rubles. If you underestimate more, then this may cause suspicion among the employees of the Federal Tax Service. At the same time, the price for the company's services may slightly increase.

Understatement of real value

In this way, save on taxes is acceptable, if you know, where to go and how to count correctly.

You need to pay tax before 15 July next year. I.e, winning the lottery 30 December, payment is required next year before the indicated date.
