How much is my income taxed?
As you might expect, national taxation is the most consistent one, and it varies from 23% to 43%. Italy is based on a progressive taxation system, where the higher the income, the more your taxes will increase.
Depending on your region of residency, you will also be charged a Regional Income Tax, which ranges from 0.9% to 1.4%.
Finally, each taxpayer has to pay a Municipal Tax to the city or town he lives in. This tax will vary from 0.1% to 0.8%.
There is no need to worry because the Italian tax system provides for many deductible expenses, including medical costs, rent, transport passes, educational expenses and many others. You can find an exhaustive list here (Cafacli.it). These expenses must be declared in your tax return and will be deducted from your tax bill.
Tax benefits for new residents
For foreigners who decide to relocate and work in Italy, there is also an exciting tax incentive, i.e. a 70% reduction of the taxable income. This means that for the first 5 years following relocation (extendable to 10 years in some cases), a person will only have to pay 30% of the taxes that are due under normal conditions.
