Separately, I would like to note that landthe tax must be paid by all organizations and citizens without exception. However, this does not mean that pension benefits are not provided for pensioners here. In this issue there are some nuances. Recall that the land tax is local, and therefore, the size and terms of payment are regulated not by federal legislation, but by urban or rural government. For example, in Syzran there are tax privileges for pensioners on land tax in the amount of half of the total amount, that is 50%. In this case, the object of taxation must meet certain conditions. It is assumed that the land is used for gardening, livestock, truck farming or individual construction.

Touching upon the theme "Tax benefits for pensioners",it is necessary to mention art. 391 clause 5 of the Tax Code, which lists the categories of citizens entitled to reduce the amount of payments. Note that if there are several land plots registered for one owner, the rate can be reduced only in relation to one of the objects.
Now a little about what benefits pensioners haveare available with respect to the payment of the transport tax. In this case, legislation also provides for certain restrictions. To lower the tax rate is possible only with respect to one car or motorcycle, which is in the possession of the pensioner.
The basis for granting benefits is a personal written application and a pension certificate.
Since the transport tax is established by local authorities and can vary significantly in the regions, you can find out the exact amount of money only in the inspection of the place of residence.
The above-mentioned tax incentives for pensionersare distributed including those who went on a well-deserved rest after the attainment of seniority. These include the military, employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and fire protection, workers of harmful industries.
