Maneuver, Irpef cut and thirteenth: the government defines priorities

«By September 20th, the Commissions, made up of some of the greatest experts in the field, must formulate proposals of a technical nature that could form the basis for future implementing decrees». It is the Deputy Minister of Economy, Maurizio Leo, who takes stock, in an interview with Messaggero, of the tax reform approved in August and which is now being implemented with delegated decrees. «The first measures we will launch will be those that do not require coverage, I am thinking – he continues – of those that concern procedures or taxpayer obligations and payments, assessments, litigation and sanctions. With these measures we will immediately calm the relationship between the Tax Authorities and taxpayers and, with Nadef, we will see if there will be space to launch measures aimed at reducing the tax burden on taxpayers”.

«Certainly one of the first measures will be the one relating to the taxation of Italian and foreign multinationals», says Leo. «The effective tax paid by multinationals must be higher than 15%», explains deputy Fratelli d’Italia. «All budget laws – he highlights again – are complex from the point of view of resources. The government’s intention is to act respecting community rules, always protecting the interests of Italians. With regard to the reform of Irpef rates, it is certainly our intention to move forward with a first phase of reorganization, easing the tax burden. As mentioned, we will have to check whether there will be coverage with Nadef. We will see. We are cautious but optimistic.”

As for the tax relief measure on the thirteenth salary, «we will see if it will be possible this year, the update note will give us answers. In any case, we think that subjecting extraordinary salaries, such as the thirteenth salary, to lower taxation would put more money in the pockets of Italians in the last month of the year. It would be – Leo’s final consideration in the conversation – money injected into the real economy.”
