Monitoring of the Federal Legislation dated 26.04.2002

Ruling of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation No. 30-O of February 7, 2002 on the Refusal to Accept for Consideration the Appeal of OAO Votkinsk Dairy and Citizens V.V.Odnoralov, A.Y.Pankin and F.F.Khalikov against Violation of the Constitutional Rights and Liberties by the Provisions of Item 4 of Article 79 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation, Item 3 of Article 2 and Item 1 of Article 395 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation

According to the applicants, the taxpayer, in cases of compensation of the damage incurred by the illegal collection from him of amounts of money in the form of tax sanctions, must have the right to demand collection of additional monetary amount from the state - the interest. Meanwhile, the mechanism of compensation of the damage incurred on the taxpayer envisaged in the Tax Code of the Russian Federation (Item 4 of Article 79) pertains to the excessively collected amounts of taxes and penalties only and does not apply to the amounts of excessively collected fines. The applicants pleaded to recognise as not complying with the Constitution of the Russian Federation the provisions of Item 3 of Article 2 and Item 1 of Article 395 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, because they do not envisage accrued interest for the illegally collected amounts of fines from the taxpayer, and the provisions of the mentioned Article of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation.
The Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation has refused to accept the appeal for consideration because the failure to comply with the Constitution of the Russian Federation of the challenged provisions of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation has been considered by the Court already. As to Item 4 of Article 79 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation, the applicants actually consider it necessary to introduce the appropriate amendment to the given norm, which is not the sphere of reference of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation.

Ruling of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation No. 29-O of February 7, 2002 on the Appeal of the Closed-Type Joint-Stock Company Nizhegorodoblsnab against Violation of the Constitutional Rights and Liberties by the Provisions of Article 2 of the Federal Law on the Amendments to the Law of the Russian Federation on the Profit Tax from Enterprises and Organizations

According to the applicant, the prohibition to include in the actual cost of products of expenses for warranty repair suffered by the retail trade enterprises, since they are not being the makers of the products, violates its rights and liberties fixed in Articles 19, 35 and 57 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
The Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation emphasized that the calculation of the profit from January 1, 2002 is carried out according to the new procedure specified in Chapter 25 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation "Profit Tax from Organizations", with the law on the profit tax from enterprises and organizations having lost its power. Besides, the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation in the Decision of October 28, 1999 recognised as not complying with the Constitution of the Russian Federation the similar norm contained in the provisions of Article 2 of the Federal Law on the amendments to the Law of the Russian Federation on the profit tax from enterprises and organizations and Item 3 of the provision on the composition of the costs for production and sale of products (works, services) included in the net cost of products (works, services) inasmuch as it pertains to the inclusion in the actual net cost of products (works, services) of expenses for warranty repair and warranty servici ng of the items having warranty service life taken into account in profit taxation.
Since the appeal challenges the same normative provision that was not recognized as complying with the Constitution of the Russian Federation earlier, the further proceedings for the appeal are terminated.
