Environmental tax will be formally levied since January 1, 2018. Tax objects are divided into 4 categories: air pollutants, water pollutants, solid wastes and noise. There are 14 major polluting industries, such as thermal power, steel, cement, electrolytic aluminum, coal, metallurgy, building materials, brewing, textile, leather making, fermentation, electroplating, printing and dyeing, papermaking, food processing, chemical industry, pharmaceutical and so on.
At present, a number of provinces and municipalities have announced specific tax plans, including Shandong, Jiangsu and other provinces of the collection standards far exceed the national minimum standard several times.
Recently, Shandong Province issued a "number of projects of Shandong Province on taxable taxable pollutants of air pollutants of water pollutant specific tax rates and the same discharge of environmental protection tax levy decision (Draft)" (hereinafter referred to as "draft"), the deadline for comments is November 9, 2017.
Among them, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides impose an environmental tax of 6 yuan per pollutant equivalent, which is far higher than the national minimum standard of 1.2 yuan.
The draft of the draft clearly defines the specific amount of air and water pollution:
1. the applicable tax amount of taxable atmospheric pollutants -- the specific applicable tax amount of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides is 6 yuan / pollution equivalent, and the specific applicable tax amount of other taxable atmospheric pollutants is 1.2 yuan / pollution equivalent.
2.The applicable tax amount of taxable water pollutants
(1)The applicable tax amount of taxable water pollutants is 1.4 yuan / pollution equivalent.
(2)Urban centralized sewage treatment sites than the provisions of national and provincial emission standards for water pollutants discharge to the environment tax, the COD, BOD, total organic carbon, total phosphorus, ammonia nitrogen, suspended solids, coliform group (the specific tax rates exceed the standard) to 3 yuan / pollution emission equivalent; specific tax rates other taxable water pollutants is 1.4 yuan / pollution equivalent.
The applicable tax amount of air pollutant environmental protection tax in Jiangsu province is 4.8 yuan per pollution equivalent (4 times of the national minimum standard), and the applicable tax of water pollutant environmental protection tax is 5.6 yuan (4 times of the national standard) of each pollution equivalent. While in Jiangsu, Nanjing, the air pollutant is 8.4 yuan per pollution equivalent, 7 times the national minimum standard; water pollution is 8.4 yuan per pollution equivalent, 6 times the national minimum standard
It can be seen that the charging standard in Nanjing is higher than that in Shandong.
