The current rate of the single social tax should be decreased next year within the framework of the tax and budget reforms, the Russian Economy Ministry told RosBusinessConsulting.

At the same time, the ministry did not specify a new level for this tax. The current rate is 35.6 percent. Meanwhile, the Finance Ministry believes that there is no possibility for a decrease in the single social tax rate until 2005.
