The new development plan which was announced by Corrado Passera, Italy's Minister for Economic Development, will be approved soon. An IRPEF deduction is expected.

Among the measures for approval, is a 50 percent deduction on IRPEF tax for those who have restructured their homes or entreprise, and a credit reimbursement of up to 35 percent for the cost of personnel.

Here is a list of all Italy's direct and indirect taxes:

Let us focus on what exactly the IRPEF tax is.

IRPEF stands for "Imposta sui Redditi delle Persone Fisiche." To the English,  this means Income Tax. Italy imposes a myriad of taxes, of which, this is likely to be the tax that will take the biggest bite out of your pocket.

There are three separate IRPEFs: National, Regional, and Local.  We will focus on the national IRPEF, which is by far the most burdensome. If you are a tax resident in Italy, the government taxes you on your worldwide income.

The criteria for this  being that one is physically resident in Italy for more than 183 days in the calendar year.

This sheet is clearly a useful tool to help you to understand, and calculate your IRPEF. There are also some tips on deductions included.

Happy tax season to all.
