Ukraine's parliament exempts owners of destroyed property from property tax

The Ukrainian Parliament exempted the owners of real estate, which was destroyed or damaged as a result of Russian aggression, from real estate tax after 281 lawmakers supported the corresponding bill No. 7632, MP Yaroslav Zheleznyak reported on Tuesday.

"We have enshrined in the Tax Code a norm that allows not to charge and not pay tax on real estate, which is different from the land plot, starting from the month in which the object is destroyed. The fact of destruction must be confirmed by a certificate of inspection of the object drawn up by the State Emergency Service or by its territorial body or local self-government body," the author of the draft law, MP Olena Shulyak wrote on Telegram.

Also, this bill exempts from payment of land tax if the land plot is located in the territories of active hostilities or occupied territories.

The benefit will be valid until the last day of the month in which hostilities or occupation of the territory ends.

In December 2022, the Verkhovna Rada allowed the write-off of car and housing loans destroyed by the war.
