Having processed all the problems which arose during the electronic submission of reports to the Tax Service, a group of experts intends to file a report to the RA Ministry of Finance. Only after exhausting administrative leverages the group will lodge a lawsuit to the court.

There exists a problem and it must be investigated, with a solution to follow

‘The Ministry of Finance is to study each of the known cases, proposing a separate solution to each case,’ stated economist Suren Parsyan today at the Media Center initiated press conference on the problems during the submission of targeted social payments and reports and possible solutions.

The other speaker, Shogher Babayan, accountant, noted that the hotline of the Pension System Awareness Center received 1850 calls within two days, which can be considered a peculiar assistance to the Ministry.

In response to the Media Center’s inquiry, the RA Ministry of Finance clarified that the calling center at the tax service operated at full capacity, with 1847 calls being answered on August 19 and 1070 calls by 15:00 on August 20.

Human rights are above technical problems

‘Ensuring and protecting human rights can never be subjected to technical or organizational problems. This is known as one of the guiding principles of the Constitutional Court and we must follow that principle,’ said Suren Parsyan.

The speaker believes that the RA Ministry of Finance is also interested in the solution of this system problem.

Shogher Babayan pointed out another problem, namely, as provided in the law, citizens born after January 1, 1996 shall be exempted of 5% of the income tax, paying only 19.4% +5% of targeted social payment. However, the system withdrew 24.4% + 5%. The Ministry argued that it was only a system problem which requires time.

Nevertheless, the experts restated their consistency and willingness to process all the publications on the inquiries and problems, ultimately submitting them to the RA Ministry of Finance.
