Purchase an A4 envelope by mail, an attachment inventory form and, if desired, a delivery receipt. Write on the envelope the addresses of the recipient and the sender, fill out the notification form. Include in the envelope the declaration and, if available, the documents attached to it (for example, an application for a tax deduction and confirmation of the income received, payment of tax and the right to deduction). Enter all documents in the inventory, indicate the price for each.

Contact a postal worker with an envelope and a completed inventory. He will call the head of the department to personally check the contents of the envelope and certify your inventory. Then the postal worker will seal the envelope and tell you the amount to be paid. Keep your receipt and return receipt if you mail with it for three years. This is the period during which the tax authorities can file claims against you.
