IUC - new name, same old taxes

Post by Admin on Mon Mar 10, 2014 3:50 pm

First topic message reminder :

All change yet again. There is nothing like tinkering to make sure that everyone is thoroughly confused over what they should pay and when.
We now have IUC - L'imposta Unica Comunale. This is made up of:

IMU - for second homes only (a generalisation but for clarity let's think of it like that)

  • Calculated on the same basis as previous IMU
  • Due on 16th June and 16th December
  • Due on any property that is not your main, habitual residence or one of its 'pertinenze' ('pertinenze' means associated structure and is defined differently in each Comune) PLUS 'luxury' properties PLUS agricoltural land and rural properties 'strumentale' (necessary) for the functioning of your agricoltural land.
  • As per last year, the guide rate is 0.76% but this can be increased by 0.3% or decreased by 0.3% at the discretion of the Comune to make a minimum of 0.46% and a maximum of 1.06%
  • The 2014 amount should be paid at 2013 rates for the first instalment unless your Comune has published the new rates
  • IMU is due on agricultural land with a deadline of 26th January 2015. At this point the exemptions are not 100% definite.
  • Rural buildings 'strumentale' (necessary) for the functioning of your agricultural land is not liable for IMU.



TARI - Tassa sui rifiuti (rubbish tax which replaces TARES

  • Calculated on the sqm of your property, whether it is residential or not and what class the property falls into. If it is residential then the number of people resident affects the bill.
  • It is paid by the resident and not the owner of the property
  • To be paid by the dates fixed by your comune in at least 2 installments.
  • By 30/6/2014 the Ministry of the Environment must approve new rules to establish the rates of TARI for 2014



TASI - Tassa sui servizi indivisibile (new IMU-like tax on all property)

  • Calculated on the Cadastral value of your property increased by 5% and multiplied by 160 (could be a slightly different number for land etc). For 2014 the maximum a comune can ask for is 0.25% of this calculated figure. The Comune can increase this by another 0.08% IF they offer discounts for Prima Casa.
  • To be paid by the dates fixed by your comune in at least 2 installments. You must also be given the opprotunity to pay in one installment by 16th December if the Comune has not fixed the rate by 31/5/2014 for Prima Casa. For other property the first instalment is payable by 16th October if your Comune has published no rates by that date and the final installment is due on 16th December 2014.
  • The base rate for 2014 is 0.1% and the IMU plus TASI may not exceed 1.06%
  • This is paid by the owner of the property BUT the comune can choose to have the tenant or occupier of the property pay anywhere from 10% to 30% of the bill with the remainder due from the owner.
  • This is paid on an F24 form and you will get no bill.
  • This is not payable on agricoltural land and at a reduced rate for buildings 'strumentale'.


A separate new property tax is:

IRPEF - New for 2013 is also a reintroduction of IRPEF on second properties, that are not rented and owned in the same comune as your main residence.

  • This is calculated by revaluing your Cadastral value upwards by 5% (like TASI & IMU), multiplying the result by 33% and dividing the result by 2.
  • IRPEF is declared and paid in your tax return so this may mean you now need to complete one where you didn't before.


For the purposes of IMU & TARI your prima casa/main residence or whatever you wish to call it is where you habitually live.
For the purposes of IRPEF it applies only to property where you do not have residency and is not where you habitually live and is not rented out.


NB - only IMU and TASI are paid using the F24 form. The other two tax is paid on a precompiled form from your Comune, although TARI may be paid on the F24 (as at today 09/05/2014). Any IMU declarations (e.g. to claim a discount for an unoccupied property) have to be submitted by 30/6/2014. This is 6 months earlier than before and will prove difficult if the Comune has not yet announced and reductions.

You can check if your Comune has published the IUC rates for 2014 here

in theory - of course 99% of comunes havent yet decided how much your IMU will be - so you cant pay anything yet.  By about 15 June you should know, which gives you a day to get to the bank.

So true. Also, not all Comune will fill it in for you either. Our old Comune put a notice up saying they wouldn't so don't bother asking them!

If you use a good IMU calculator (like RISCOTEL etc) then they usuallu have a button where once you have completed your entries you can print the F24 to take to the post office or send to your bank. If you are abroad that is the easiest way to do it - send it to your bank. In fact most online banking systems will let you create a 'virtual' F24 form and pay your IMU online so you van do it that way too.

If you are claiming a reduction in IMU (and we don't know which ones will be allowed this year) you will also need to complete an IMU declaration where you declare the property is uninhabitable etc.

Just remember that we also have TASI that may need to be paid on an F24 but no-one really knows yet. For TARI, you shuld get a bill from the Comune.

Piquet, we all wish that they will find an easier way to tell us how much, how and when to pay. We all wish that we could get a bill as it is the case in most countries. TARI is easier, we have been paying on line; however, our Comune told us that it was safer to send them a copy of the transfer together with a copy of our bill, so that it was easier for them to identify our payment. We have been doing that and no problems. And, as ghiro said, anyone can pay on your behalf.

OK - the latest news is that if your comune does not announce the amount it has decided upon for TASI by 31/5/2014 then you do not have to pay until 16th December for prima casa and 16th September for everything else.

This means we won't really know if or what to pay for TASI until 1st June 2014. Watch this space!

You can check if your Comune has published the rates here

IMU (unless it is prima casa) first installment must be paid by 16th June at last year's rate if your Comune has not published new rates.

Rubbish tax TARI can be paid in as many instalments and with the deadline decided by the Comune. However, if the Coumne provides no bill, pre-compiled Post Office bolletino or F24 then it is your responsibility to pay it.

Here are the codes for the F24 for TARI 2014.

The 'official' (ie when the Comune has not said otherwise) deadlines are July 2014 and October 2014 or you can pay in one instalment in June 2014. Of course unless the Comune says how it is calculating the bill it will be rather hard to pay!

I'd be LOST without this Forum. There does at times seem to be somewhat 'heated' banter, but it is all very useful for us. Being Prima casa, I am assuming I still do nothing until some organisation asks for something ?! Excellent !

Thanks to all for the info.

Tweaked update due to politics - so the comunes who didnt set the rate for teh IMU cos there are elections and they didnt want to upset possible voters, have now got util 31 July to set the aliquote.  Then they realised that there's August - so have delayed the payment deadline to 16 October to give everyone time to unpack their winter clothes.   Thus as of yesterday evening:  If your comune has not set the aliquota which must therefore be paid by 16 June, you will pay your TASI by 16 October, (and again by 16 December if presumably there isnt a month with an R in it in between).

Why is it that there is not a single entity who can just say 'do it', and then say by 'xyz date' ?!

That one is easy "V" , it's because it's Italy...!  Smile  Smile  Smile  I have to keep looking up what is "tari" and "tasi" and it's making me very "tizi"! I could get away with rifiuti (now TARI) and IMU (kinda now TASI was ICI), but I'm sure even your average Italian must be lost by now - perhaps the intention. Oh and I agree, thanks to the likes of Admin and Modi and others on the forum, we at least have an idea what is going on!

Single entity? because this is ITaly and the constitution allows comunes virtual independence whilst being subject to restrictions at regional and then at national level thus ensuring independent chaos.

Can you tell me if TASI is due to be paid on a holiday home?  The property is only used for holidays by the owners and is not available for renting to others.

I asked my commercialista about Tasi and she said that as I paid imu as a second home owner, I would also pay Tari for rifiuti but that I would not need to pay Tasi? I wasn't convinced but who knows.

Well Karen, my advice would be to ask your commercialista whether she would be prepared to pay the fine should her advice be incorrect. I you read the TASI definition...you will see what it is all about. It is all very confusing, though...

On a second home you pay IMU and TASI - if you pay IMU at the maximum allowed by law, then you wont be TASI unless the comune tweak it give other people tax breaks.   Some comunes will not charge TASI on first homes, somewont charge at all.  But, your commercialista hasnt quite grasped the situation!

IMU is 10.6 as they have not yet deliberated so that might explain it. As a resident living and working in Italy I knew as far as I could what to pay and when and even then I could get fined, but having to go back to the UK and transferring to non resident just as the tax system has changed IMU, Tari and Tasi + Irpef on a second home from 2014 has fried my brain. Thanks for your help

call me an old sceptic, but I'm sure the reason behind all these changes and new names for different taxes, is to confuse the hell out of people and insure that some taxes wont be paid and therefore the gain the ability to add fines to these later.
I still maintain that it should be illegal for a Comune to make you figure out what you have to pay then fine you if you have it wrong, it's not a 3rd World Country is it??

Flip, I agree with you. Local government is putting a big burden on top of all of us. The responsibility of sending bills with the amounts to be paid should be theirs. Many people have to pay extra fees to have those amounts calculated and if there is any mistake... here comes the fine. Perhaps we should all refuse to pay unless a proper bill is received, but it should be a massive rebellion to produce any results...Looks as if I am becoming a revolutionary with old age creeping  Twisted Evil

Ok i have checked but still not sure (who is) yes we have to pay Tasi on second homes but Bagni di Lucca has not decided at what rate yet so we can't pay anything until they do, September was mentioned!
Does this sound right to anybody else?

Yes, hubby went to the "Tributi!" office in mid-June and he was told that we should know by September. Which is a pain, as we prefer to pay the lot by the end of June, in case we have an unforeseen problem and we cannot return to Bagni in September... Well, it looks as if we are coming, but it is always a worry. Why can't they send us a bill and let us choose whether we prefer to pay the lot or do it in installments?  Rolling Eyes

Thanks for the confirmation Gala, it's always a worry because we have been given poor advice from both accountants and the commune in the past.
