- a leah decisions of the European court on tax questions Are applied in the Russian Federation? In particular, the decision from May, 11th, 2006 C - 384/ 04, devoted to questions of a solidary duty of the tax bearer and the supplier on VAT payment?
Maria Juritsky, Rostov.

- the Russian Federation is not included into number of the countries of the European Union, and EU judgements are formally unessential to Russia and its state structures. However the problems resolved by this Court, at times are similar to the problems existing in the Russian tax system. EU court has taken out five decisions, devoted to questions of a solidary duty of the tax bearer and the supplier on VAT payment, including what you mention.

and so, you have the legitimate right to make the link to the given decision as the Russian Federation recognises basic norms and international law principles including on tax questions, and application in court of the given decisions probably.
