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

Not a question about the taxes but linked all the same.  The catastale in the deeds was proposed at 415.75€ but checking up I now find it is 704,96€.  Has anyone else had this experience?  The house was a new build last year and a similar thing happened when we bought our apartment 6 years ago.  I strikes me that figures can be applied arbitrarily without any consultation and with no evident means of appeal.  Still cheaper than UK council tax but there are principles at stake here.

Yes, michelangelo, the "rendita catastale" has been substantially increased in just a year. As it is the case with all taxes, no consultation and no appeal... well, I guess that an appeal could always be possible, but the cost of it will not make it worthwhile. Still, and as you said, property taxes in Italy are lower than in other countries.

I have read that some commune have decided not to charge Tasi on 2nd houses! Bagni di lucca is one of them. I think that is good news?

I would agree -good news, but I guess it depends what they are charging for IMU? Is there not some over all limit they can charge for the two on 2nd homes?

the maximum - on apper of the TASI and IMU combined is 10.6 - but if the comune decides to give certain groups concessions, such as the disabled, the old, the unemployed, people whose surname begins with B, then they can charge more......

Is This site LINK out of date or has the deadlines changed recently...? Put in our Comune and it came up with this at the bottom :-
PRIMA RATA TASI
Il versamento della prima rata della TASI con scadenza il 16 giugno 2014 deve essere effettuato sulla base delle delibere pubblicate nel presente sito informatico alla data del
31 maggio 2014.
In caso di mancata pubblicazione della delibera entro il 31 maggio 2014, il versamento della prima rata della TASI deve essere effettuato entro il 16 ottobre 2014 sulla base delle delibere pubblicate nel presente sito informatico alla data del 18 settembre 2014.
In caso di mancata pubblicazione della delibera entro il 18 settembre 2014, il versamento dell'imposta deve essere effettuato in un'unica soluzione entro il 16 dicembre 2014.


Appears to be saying they now have a second rate setting date of the 18th September...

Only in 'mancanza di delibera' - so if your comune 'deliberated' and set the aliquota by June, then you have paid, and the second rate will be due in December.  For those comunes which couldnt decide the first rate will be in October, and again in December....

Thanks Modi, so this Sep 18th date is the date by which the aliquota for your first rate, for payment in October, has to be set, else you pay the lot in December? If so then things do seem to be different, I thought if no rate was set by 31st May, then December was the date for residents. And guessed that would be the full and final rate.... Rolling Eyes 
As an aside, I must add that in some small way I do think they are trying a little harder to get their act together, note I do say "samll way". I had cause to look at a few comune web sites yesterday and they all look quite uniform and have some kind of reference to IUC... Ok some are still showing as IMU... The one's I looked at all had a link to the Ministry of Finance link to check if your comune had set their rate and most to a calculation site (guess all of them the same site) Smile

Well we were not too sure if the rates quoted on their document were for just part payment or the whole year. So being back in the UK at the time we emailed the comune with what we thought was the rate (€235 for the year). A day later we had a reply confirming this amount and a completed F24. Following on from the post discussing costs in Italy v UK, that's roughly £350 house tax in Italy (inc TARI) as opposed to £1289 in the UK for a much smaller place.

We have paid almost that much in Tari, let alone anything else, costs are very regional.

Well I believe that is very true, but within certain limits, our rate was 1.6/1000 (per thousand). However I'm not too sure if TASI (house tax) is not based of SQM of the house as is TARI (rubbish tax). Our place is down as 130 SQM, but is actually 260 SQM. We assume this is because the downstairs has not been registered as habitable.

Checking our place in the UK which is a paltry 58 SQM, making the more than 3x house tax rate even worse than I thought! Although we have to accept we do get a little more for our buck in the UK and a bill each year where we know well in advance the amount Exclamation

Should that first reference to TARI be TASI? Can you explain, please, what is meant by a rate of 1.6/1000? E.g. 1.6 what per 1000 what?

Our tari (rubbish tax) is based on size, we have a small two bedroomed apartment in Italy (70 Sqm) we paid 263 Euro's this year which is down on last year. This includes a 25% reduction for not being resident.

Thanks Neil, it certainly should be ! The rate is 1.6 and it's per 1000 of heavens knows what, but no longer a percent as it used to be... It probably makes more sense if you go to use their on-line calculator, it used to be a % you put in for the aliquota, but now it is the "per thousand" rate which they represent with this "‰" Question  Now I know what they are up to I simply think of it as "the rate", but people used to it being a "%" could get it awfully wrong.

IMU etc for holiday home owners

Post by STEZ77 on Thu Aug 06, 2015 7:15 am

We've had  a holiday home in italy since 2009. We thought we had the ICI/IMU/TARI/TASI etc sorted, we were receiving bills by email and paying them through bank transfer.  However we discovered in December 2014 that that was not the case. We went to the comune office this July to try and sort things out. We were told that the comune don't send bills for IMU and TASI and that we need to use a third party to calculate what we owe. They introduced us to someone, who we already knew as he was the geometra for the family we bought the house from, and he is supposed to be getting in touch with us via email in November re the December payment. Is this usual practice ? Also can you confirm which taxes we pay as non resident holiday home owners confused

Hello and welcome STEZ77.  My impression is that each comune makes up the rules as they go along! Shocked 

Also a holiday home owner I go to my local comune every year to meet up with Mario - aka 'Smiler'.  Possibly the most miserable man in the whole of Tuscany!  He produces bits of expensive paper,  3918 - what I used to know as IMU/ICI etc and now 3961 which I think is a land tax.  These need to be paid in June & December.

Usually through the post (but not yet this year) I also get my rubbish tax bill.

Having a house in Italy is never dull! Smile

You have been receiving bills for TARI which is the rubbish presumably.  Dont pay a geometra to calculate your IMU, nip down the local CAF who will do it for praps even for free.   You will have arrears to pay with appropriate fines for late payment, but if you pay them before the comune sends the letter you will save a fair bit.   Aas many comunes didnt set the 2015 rates in time, alot of December payments will be higher than Junes to include the new rates.

Hello and welcome.As a non-resident home owner, you pay all the taxes, as stated in the initial post. You will not have to pay IRPEF if you do not rent rout your house. This time, get it all sorted out through the geometra you are already in touch with. For next year, you can change to the local CAF. 
When you do your transfer payments in future, do a photocopy of the receipt and send it by mail to the relevant Council office. Make sure that it contains the name of the owner, the address and the relevant tax you are paying for. This was advised to us by our Council saying that sometimes it is difficult for them to identify the payer and that it helps to clarify everything. 
Yes, it is crazy, all the burden is placed on the one who pays... But this is Italy! Rolling Eyes

Also, remember that if the property is in joint names you must each pay 50% separately.
