The millionaire bloggers Chekalins were charged with non-payment of taxes for 300 million rubles. News of the day in the world and Russia today
In Moscow, investigators opened a case against Chekalina Valeria and her husband Chekalin Artem for tax evasion. About this on Tuesday, March 7, “Lente.ru” reported in the capital department of the Investigative Committee (IC) of Russia.
According to the agency, from June 2020 to July 2022, Chekalina was an individual entrepreneur. At the same time, she applied a simplified taxation system with an allowable income limit of 150 million rubles a year. Although her income from the sale of fitness marathons brought significantly larger amounts.
The woman did not want to pay more taxes, so she attracted her husband and other relatives as accomplices.
Thus, Chekalina’s income went to settlement accounts opened on the IP of her relatives. This fragmentation of the business allowed the blogger to evade taxes for 300 million rubles.
In fact, a case was initiated under the article on tax evasion and complicity in tax evasion from an individual.
Now employees of the GUEB and the PC of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia are conducting searches in the house of the defendants.
