The paper provides a calculation-based analysis of the real Russian citizen’s fiscal burden, since the flat scale, which is one of the lowest in the world, does not fully reflect the facts on the ground. In the context of the multiple gap between the poor and the wealthy segments of the population, the existing tax system in Russia is structured in such a way that it erodes the lion’s share of the family budget of the poor, in stark contrast to the rich, who have more opportunities for investment, and this seems illogical in terms of social justice. From this, a conclusion is made about the necessity to come back to the progressive personal income tax since the costs of this seem insignificant, and the gain in the economy is essential. This decision should also bridge the significant gap in financial terms between the poor and the rich and reduce the social tension in Russian society.
