Comedian Semyon Slepakov is trying to sell an elite apartment in Moscow. However, due to the lack of tax residency in the Russian Federation, he has to resort to sophisticated methods to avoid a rather high tax – 30%, Komsomolskaya Pravda writes.
The apartments of 217 square meters are located in an elite residential complex in the center of Moscow: on the Crimean embankment, half an hour’s walk from the Kremlin. For an apartment without repair, the bard asks for 3.4 million dollars, or about 260 million rubles. However, for urgency, I am ready to throw off 45%.
However, there is one important nuance: the artist has owned the object for less than five years, which is why he must pay income tax when selling it. Traditionally, it is 13% of the income received, however, Slepakov, who left for Israel, lost his tax residency in the Russian Federation, which increases the amount of the obligation to 30%.
Therefore, the other day, journalists noticed that the artist’s IP, which was used to pay for concerts, had a new permitted type of activity – “buying and selling their own real estate.” Thus, when selling a lot on behalf of an individual entrepreneur, Slepakov will pay only 6%.
Recall that Semyon Slepakov, after he left for Israel, outraged the public with an insulting song about the mothers of those who fight in the NVO, because of which he was even offered to be deprived of citizenship.
Earlier, we announced tax innovations that will affect property owners in 2023.
