The number of citizens that refused to register to recieve tax numbers in view of their religious beliefs has reached 13,400, which is 36% more than in 2011.

The registration of such individual taxpayers is conducted under a special register of the State register.

"For this purpose they have to address to the tax services. Specialists of the tax service make a corresponding mark in the passport of such taxpayer. After this, they can make any payments using the series and number of their passport," the text reads.
