RUR 1bn got written off Sverdlovsk Region’s residents’ overdue tax payment amounts between January 1 and October 19, 2018, head of Russia’s Federal Tax Service’s Sverdlovsk Region division’s Debt Settlement Department Artem Balyura said at a press conference in Yekaterinburg.

The money written off pertains to unpaid transport tax, land tax, and property tax. The overall amount of unpaid taxes has gone down by RUR 2.5bn since the beginning of the year.
