If I'm emailing the bank to ask for a receipt for a payment and want to sound formal, what should I use? What would sound most natural?

Прошу вас прислать квитанцию на оплату налоги(обучение....)

Прошу вас прислать квитанцию об уплате налога (оплате обучения).

It's usually "квитанция об..." (about a payment that's been made) and "счёт на..." (for an expected payment).

The choice between оплата/уплата:

  • If you're talking about money (сумма, налог), use уплата (чего?) суммы, налога; уплатить (что?) сумму, налог.
  • If you state what you're paying for, use оплата/оплатить: оплата обучения, оплатить проживание.
  • Got it. In this case I am asking for the document with all the info to go to the bank and pay for my education. So ..прислать счет на оплату обучения. .... прислать счеть на обучение. Commented Jul 15, 2022 at 8:00
