Tax Worker's Day: from Peter to the present day
Each of us has colleagues, acquaintances, friends who celebrate Tax Workers Day. And do you know where this holiday came from and how did the tax system of our country form?
But this system had a rich prehistory. The first tax Russia, dealing with all financial issues, was formed under Peter the Great. He organized and recruited employees at twelve state colleges. The list of four of them included just financial activities.
The next stage was the creation of Catherine IIa special expedition on state revenues. This happened in 1780, and twenty-two years later the first Ministry of Finance appeared. Created it already Alexander the First. He also defined the sphere of influence of this state body - the incomes and expenses of the country.
Today everyone who considers hisa professional holiday Day of the tax worker, knows: the tax system is based on more than two dozen laws covering virtually the entire economy of the country. It can be found both as an identity and as a reflection of the generally accepted practice of many similar systems in the world. But one thing is certain: it is the tax system that is one of several key factors that ensure the stability and clarity of the functioning of all the country's finances.
The day of the tax worker was created specially,to thank these people for their dedication, attention, perseverance and protection of the interests of our country. We congratulate them on this holiday and wish patience, professional success and many years of guarding the Russian tax system!
