IP Ivanov paid the simplified tax in the amount of 60,000 rubles on time. However, for some reason, the Germany WhatsApp Number List payment did not reach the Federal Tax Service.

% = Refund amount × D × SR ÷ 365;
% - interest on the amount of overcharged tax;
Amount of refund - the amount of overcharged tax subject to refund;
D - the number of days for which interest is calculated (from the day following
after the day of collection, until the day of actual return);
SR - refinancing rate, from March 23 7.25%.
