Letter of the Department of the Tax and Customs Tariff Policy of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation No. 03-06-04-02/15 of November 22, 2005 on the Determination of the Category of Transport Vehicles and the Rates of Transport Tax

In the determination of the category of transport vehicles for the purposes of the transport tax, the norms of Chapter 28 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation apply: Article 358 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation contains the definition of the notion of "transport vehicle" for taxation purposes; Item 1 of Article 361 of Tax Code specifies that the rates of the transport tax are defined in the laws of the subjects of the Russian Federation depending on the category of transport vehicles and the power rating of engines installed in them and their total capacity.

The categories of transport vehicles envisaged in the Tax Code of the Russian Federation (cars and trucks, bikes and scooters, buses and other self-propelled machines and mechanisms - pneumatic and track-laying) are in compliance with the categories specified in the Convention on highway traffic (Vienna, November 8, 1986) ratified in the Russian Federation. Therefore, transport vehicle certificates in Line 4 "Category of the Transport Vehicle (A, B, C, D, Trailer)" show the category in compliance with the classification of transport vehicles specified in the Convention.

All-Russia Classifier of Fixed Assets OK 013-94 (OKOF) endorsed by the Decision of the State Standards Committee of Russia of December 26, 1994 is not a normative document permitting to include a transport vehicle in this or that category according to the Convention and the norms of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation. Therefore, the classifier may only be used where it does not contradict the Convention on highway traffic.
