Tax for Shuvalov's land in Skolkovo raised almost 3,000 times after abatement investigation
Previously, the former deputy prime minister had to pay 323 rubles ($4,99) a year for a plot in the luxury district, but turned out to be a non-payer.
Rosreestr required Head of Vnesheconombank and former Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov to pay an amount of 2,762 times more than before for a land plot of 7.6 hectares in the elite Moscow region district Skolkovo. The cadastral value was recalculated after the publication of the investigation of Baza project, according to which Shuvalovs’ Zarechye-4 owed the state 7,300 rubles ($112) for the land plot, while it was necessary to pay only 323 rubles a year.
Now Shuvalov is obliged to pay 892 thousand rubles ($13,781) a year with the cadastral value of land of 297 million rubles ($4,588,650). Previously, the plot of land in Skolkovo ‘cost’ 107.5 thousand rubles ($1,660). However, journalists compared the cost with a neighboring plot owned by Senator Suleyman Kerimov and concluded that the real price of Shuvalov’s plot is about 296.5 million rubles ($4,577,960).
