Overview of Taxation in Italy

Taxation in Italy is a structured system overseen by the Agenzia delle Entrate (Revenue Agency). The system covers various types of taxes, such as income tax, corporate tax, and value-added tax (VAT), among others. The tax year in Italy generally aligns with the calendar year, running from January 1 to December 31.

Types of Taxes

  1. Income Tax (IRPEF): This is a progressive tax levied on an individual's income.
  2. Corporate Tax (IRES): Companies are subject to this tax on their net profits.
  3. Value-Added Tax (VAT): Applied to the purchase of goods and services.
  4. Capital Gains Tax: Imposed on the profits from the sale of assets.
  5. Inheritance and Gift Tax: Levied on assets received as inheritance or gifts.

Calculating Taxes

The calculation of taxes in Italy can be complex, given the range of allowances, deductions, and credits available. The basic formula for calculating personal income tax is:

Taxable Income = Gross Income - Allowable Deductions


  1. Taxable Income: The income amount that is subject to taxation.
  2. Gross Income: Total income earned by the individual.
  3. Allowable Deductions: Specific expenses that can be deducted from the gross income.

Once the taxable income is determined, the applicable tax rate can be found in the tax tables.

Who Must Pay Taxes?

In Italy, both residents and non-residents are subject to taxation, albeit under different rules:

  • Residents: Taxed on worldwide income.
  • Non-Residents: Taxed only on income earned within Italy.

Filing and Payment

The deadline for tax filing usually falls in the late spring, and it's crucial to file the return on time to avoid penalties. Payment can be made through various methods, such as direct debit, wire transfer, or even in cash at designated offices.
