Do I need to pay for a well on my site

With the help of a tax on water wells, the state investigates where and by whom the subsoil is being developed, thus calculating the citizens who carry out illegal activities for the extraction of water. That is, taxes control the environmental situation in the country and maintain its stability. Also, in most cases, the use of water must be licensed.

For example, if the well is of the tubular type (or mine), or rather it is an artesian source, then it must be licensed and a tax is paid for it.

To be able to use natural resources, any person must obtain a license from the executive authorities. Well excise tax is the payment of funds to the state every quarter.

Do I need to pay tax on wells and wells

Any source must have a technical passport with its parameters and setting data, which during construction were provided to the Department for Subsoil Supervision of the Russian Federation. Some wells are of limited use. Payment for a water well is required if the source meets the following specifications:

  • The depth of the aquifer is 40 to 250 meters;
  • The water contains a high concentration of natural salts and minerals.
  • The mine is drilled into the bottom layer of the water vein.
  • The water is clean and does not contain metal impurities.

Wells and wells tax is exempt if it meets the following conditions:

  • The depth of a well or borehole ranges from 5 to 20 meters, and sometimes even 40 meters;
  • The water intake is installed on a personal plot or summer cottage;
  • The owner is not engaged in entrepreneurial activity;
  • Wells and wells are located on the sand, since they do not affect the waters of natural resources;
  • The amount of water used is calculated for the residents of the house and for irrigation of the site;
  • Wells for limestone if the aquifer does not use the central water supply (up to 80 meters).

Subject to the above points, you can use free water in summer cottages or regulatory authorities can conduct an inspection. The violator can be warned or fined. If you continue to violate, you will have to plug the well at your own expense.

Individuals who use water from an artesian well for personal purposes pay 81 rubles for one thousand cubic meters.

Businessmen, water supply organizations and other facilities have different payment rates, the approximate cost varies in the range from 300 to 754 rubles per thousand cubic meters. Detailed rates can be found in the department of the Federal Tax Service or on the official website of the service.
