Lawyer: fees for verification of individuals ID-numbers unlawful

Kyiv. September 29, 2010

Fee-based verification by the Tax Service bodies of an individual’s ID-number issued by the State Tax Administration of Ukraine (the STAU) contravenes the law, believes Associate from Volkov Koziakov and Partners Ruslan Malinovskyi.
“The question on fees charged for the services provided undermines legal grounds for establishment of the bodies of the Tax Service of Ukraine and the watchdog authority – the STAU", said Mr. Malinovskyi, commenting to Interfax-Ukraine on the draft law recently passed by the Parliament in the first reading. The said draft law contemplates that the credit history bureau be empowered to obtain fee-based information on authenticity of an individual-taxpayer’s ID-number from the state tax service bodies.
According to the Associate’s explanation, the Law “On the State Tax Service” does not lay down any legal grounds for the state tax inspections and administrations, structurally subordinated to the STAU, to inspect superior watchdog authority, as well as registration of individuals – taxpayers.
Reportedly, the Verkhovna Rada supported the draft law in the first reading, whereby it is offered to prescribe that the State Tax Service has to verify at the credit history bureau's request identification number issued to an individual, taxpayer, and payer of other obligatory payments.
In addition, the draft law sets forth that the procedure and amount of fee charged for the verification have to be determined by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
