Green taxation promotes "beautiful China"

Taxation plays a fundamental, pillar, and supportive role in national governance. As China's economy moves towards a high-quality development stage, tax authorities take the initiative to actively plan and serve the country's major development strategies.

Actively promoting the construction of a green tax system is an important measure for tax authorities to help high-quality economic development. The implementation of the new green tax policy, such as the formal introduction of environmental protection taxes and the comprehensive ad valorem reform of resource taxes, can be described as timely.

Cai Zili, Director of the Department of Property and Behavior Tax of the State Administration of Taxation, introduced that in order to ensure the smooth implementation of the first tax collection period for environmental protection tax, the State Administration of Taxation has actively established an organizational guarantee system with relevant departments, and signed a Memorandum of Cooperation on Environmental Protection Tax Collection and Management with Ministry of Environmental Protection , Clarified the tasks of the seven major types of cooperative work; grasped the basic work of collection and management, and designed the "1 main (declaration main form) 4 auxiliary (water, gas, sound, slag schedule) 1 reduction and exemption" report, supplemented by one The basic information collection form filled out by the group at one time has effectively reduced the taxpayer's declaration burden.

"Next, the tax department will focus on promoting the construction of a tax-related information sharing platform to achieve the connection between the provincial tax side and the environmental protection side system; comprehensively conduct classified counseling in conjunction with the" convenience of the private tax spring action "to ensure that taxpayers will calculate and declare; Online and offline taxation services, information comparison, analysis of policy effects, etc., to further implement the preparation of fine environmental tax collection and management. "Cai Zili said.

In 2017, coal prices rose sharply year-on-year. Under the ad valorem mechanism, coal resource tax revenue was 66.755 billion yuan, an increase of 84.33% year-on-year.

Integrated innovation enhances the “gold content” of the business environment

Reforming and innovating institutional mechanisms and further optimizing the business environment is an important foundation for building a modern economic system and promoting high-quality development, and it is also an important part of government departments to provide public services. In 2017, the national tax system conducted a three-month tax survey and experiential survey to focus on finding and solving a number of pain points, blocking points, and difficult issues affecting the reform of the tax system's “decentralization and administration services”.

"Based on the research, we formulated and issued" Several Opinions on Deepening the Reform of the Tax Administration System and Optimizing the Tax Environment ", and proposed 30 measures to co-ordinate the reform of the tax administration system." Fu Shulin, Deputy Director of the General Office of the State Administration of Taxation According to the introduction, the tax department launched a series of practical tricks such as canceling the invoice invoicing materials and implementing real-name tax processing, which greatly reduced the tax processing time.

It is reported that the World Bank's Doing Business Report 2018 shows that China's taxation time has been shortened by 52 hours compared with the previous year, and its ranking has increased by 32 places. The special survey results of taxpayer satisfaction organized by third parties in 2017 also showed that the national tax and local tax scores increased by 5.49 points and 2.04 points respectively from the same caliber of the previous year, indicating that taxpayer satisfaction and sense of gain have been further enhanced.

The implementation of a "blacklist" of tax violations and a joint disciplinary system to regulate the behavior of taxpayers and maintain a fair market order is also a major measure adopted by tax authorities to optimize the business environment. According to Fu Shulin, "In 2017, tax authorities at all levels across the country announced a total of 4,228 tax violation" blacklists ", a nearly doubled year-on-year increase; and the promotion of multi-departmental joint punishment of 64,200 households, a year-on-year increase of 153%."

In 2018, the national tax system will be guided by Xi Jinping's thoughts on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. It will thoroughly implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, continue to improve the efficiency of tax management and services, deepen the reform of the "decentralization of services" of the tax system, and strive to optimize taxation. The business environment and precise measures help high-quality economic development. February 01, 2018
