MOSCOW Nov 29 All decisions on taxes should be
taken before the end of summer in 2018 when the State Duma or
lower house of parliament wraps up its spring session, Russia's
First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said on Tuesday.
Though the current government has pledged not to increase
the tax burden on businesses and households, Moscow is under
pressure to find new revenue channels because weak oil prices
are making it harder to fill state coffers.
