Tax deductions from personal income tax

2008 has ended, it's time to return taxes.

According to the Russian legislation, every employer is obliged to withhold tax on personal income in the amount of 13% of your earnings. This means that for the last year the government has taken away from you about 15% of the amount that you get your hands on. Fortunately, part of this sum (and in some cases full amount) you can get back.

To return the money, you have to fill your tax return and to provide documents proving your expenses, for which the tax code provides tax deductions

Property deductions

The most significant part of the tax can be recovered after use of property deductions granted to citizens who have acquired the ownership of real estate or have spent significant funds to repair existing housing.
The amounts below 2 million rubles spent on the purchase, construction or renovation of an apartment or house are not taxed. In addition, if for this purpose you took out a loan, the amount paid as interest on the loan is deducted from the tax base (with no limit on the amount). It should be noted that the unused portion of a property deduction can be transferred for the next year.

The maximum possible return:
260k. rubles + 13% of the amount of interest paid on a mortgage

Keep in mind that the property deduction when purchasing a property can be used only once in a lifetime.

1) Charity expenses: (not more than 25% of total income)
