Owners of land plots in Russia must pay tax on bathhouses and other structures if they are classified as outbuildings and do not stand on a solid foundation. Such explanations were given to RIA Novosti by State Duma deputy from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Sergei Gavrilov.
Gavrilov clarifiedthat a bathhouse, barn, greenhouse or toilet that is easily portable are not considered capital construction projects, which means citizens will not pay tax on them. The deputy also referred to the explanations of the Russian Register, according to which summer residents must register an object if it is considered capital.
“Then he must pay tax for the ownership of such real estate,” the parliamentarian said, adding that the tax office learns about the presence of such registered capital buildings from the unified register of rights to real estate.
Article 407 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation, as Gavrilov noted, exempts citizens from paying tax on one outbuilding on a personal plot if the area of the building is no more than 50 square meters. m.
