Deputy who advised Russians to eat less gets exempted from tax debts
The information became public during the bankruptcy case of Ilya Gaffner.
April 19, it became known that the tax debts of Sverdlovsk deputy Ilya Gaffner had been written off. The reason for this was the 2018 amnesty law.
The parliamentarian was demanded to pay taxes in the amount of 5.5 thousand rubles ($85); the bulk of this amount was transport tax.
Representatives of the tax service reported that Gaffner did not make tax payments from 2011 to 2014. However, the debt was written off in accordance with the amnesty law. The information became public during the Gaffner bankruptcy case. Russian Agricultural Bank filed a lawsuit against it, demanding 160 million rubles ($2.49 million) from the parliamentarian. The deputy became famous for urging Russians “to eat less.”
