Tax on horsepower
Calculate road tax is necessary for the number of horsepower of the vehicle. This indicator is indicated in most technical documents for a car. If this is true, then the transport tax will be easy to calculate. However, if the engine power is represented by kilowatts, they must be independently converted to horsepower.
One kilowatt is 1.35962 hp In this case, it is worth rounding the resulting figure to the second decimal place. It is worth noting that you can pay tax only on the basis of special notices. This procedure is performed no earlier than November 1 of the year that follows the tax period.
What to do in case of discrepancy data?
According to the law, tax authorities are not allowed to make any changes to the information provided by the registering authority. For this reason, the owner is required to contact specialized companies in case of discrepancies in these technical specifications and registration documents. The service representative will perform the vehicle expertise. Also, this procedure can be done by the manufacturer. Then, the information received and the relevant opinion must be provided to the registration authorities. In certain situations, they make changes to the registration documents of the transport document, and then pass them on to the tax office. Based on the data obtained, the tax authorities recalculate the road tax.

It must be recognized as a taxable item.Also obliged to pay tax organizations, the balance of which consist of various types of vehicles. They can be not only cars, but also buses, motor boats, motorcycles and air vehicles. Taxpayers should regularly pay the entire calculated amount. As a rule, it does not exceed one thousand rubles. In this case, confirmation of payment is not required when undergoing maintenance.
