When applying for a job, among othersnecessary documents is located and TIN. Many people have a question about what is an INN? What is it for and why should we necessarily be numbered? Ten years ago there were serious disputes about this. Particularly religious citizens, having learned about the need to assign numbers to each person, remembered the so-called number of the beast, sincerely believing that it was the TIN. Others were just too lazy to waste their time on the waiting list for getting another "piece of paper." However, over time it has become something quite ordinary, its existence no longer surprises anyone. However, the need for this document is still not clear to everyone.
What is an individual's tax ID
INN is an individual number of a citizen intax system. Everyone knows that from any income received in Russia it is necessary to pay tax. To track the duty to pay taxes and pay off debts, tax numbering of citizens is introduced.
Assigning an identification numberis carried out at the reference of the citizen in tax on a residence where it will be necessary to write the application on reception of TIN and to give all necessary documents:
Depending on the specifics of the work of the tax,the number will be assigned either immediately upon appeal or within a few working days (usually five). Tax identification number is a sequence of 12 figures (Arabic). The first two figures characterize the code of the subject of the Russian Federation. The next two are the tax department code. The six subsequent figures reflect the taxpayer's record number. The last number of two digits is a check number and shows the correctness of the number. After assigning the number to the taxpayer, a certificate of registration - A4 sheet containing personal data of the taxpayer and its identification number is issued.
Recently it has become possible to obtain an INNthrough the Internet. To do this, just leave a request on the tax portal. There you can track the status of the application. This method is good because it can be ordered directly from home or from the workplace without spending time on a trip to the tax. The TIN of the individual entrepreneur does not differ from the usual one, so when registering an IP, it is not necessary to obtain one more number.
What is an INN of a legal entity
To register as taxpayersmust and legal entities. The assignment of a number and the receipt of a certificate in this case is carried out at the time of registration of the enterprise. To receive a ready TIN, an employee with the right to sign is required. At the moment, it is impossible to order TINs to enterprises online.
The tax number of legal entities isa combination of ten figures, the first of which reflect the subject of the Russian Federation and the tax code. Another five figures are directly the tax entry number in the EGRN section. The last digit is used to check the correctness of the number.
What is an INN of a foreign legal entity
If a legal entity is registered forborder, but carries out activities in the territory of the Russian Federation subject to Russian taxation, it must also receive an INN. This number is a consecutive combination of ten numbers, however the first four of them will always be "9909".
Replacement and refusal to receive TIN
The INN is assigned for each person (be itphysical or legal) once, for life (time of functioning). In case of loss of such a duplicate must be issued, for which it is necessary to apply to the local tax office. After the death of a person or the cessation of the operation of a legal entity, an INN can not be assigned to another entity. It is not possible to replace the TIN in case of a change in the personal data of the person (name, place of residence) and reorganization of the enterprise.
Any citizen may refuse to receive an INNand the use of the identification number in the documents. To do this, you need to write an appropriate application in the tax. Legal entities do not have such a right.
