Methods The paper includes a critical analysis of legislative instruments regulating taxation of profits, including those of controlled foreign companies. Using the monographic method, I investigate basic principles of profit taxation in conditions of financial instability in the Russian Federation. Results The paper provides a scientific justification of efficiency of corporate income tax administration, proposals to develop the methodology for taxation of profit of controlled foreign companies, and gives reasons for the need to consider the indicator of stability of the national economy. Conclusions and Relevance To adapt the taxation system to changes in external environment, I created a set of characteristics of profit as an economic category based on systematization of existing indicators of performance evaluation of tax administration of profits of controlled foreign companies.
