The annual TV licence fee to fund state broadcaster, RAI will automatically be included in electricity bills. The licence fee will be reduced from €113 to €100 in 2016 and a further reduction to €95 is expected in 2017.
For 2016, the fee will be split in two tranches payable with electricity bills from July to December. In 2017 the licence fee will be payable in two monthly bills.
The TV licence is linked to where you are considered resident by your municipality. You will only pay one licence fee – on your principal residence. If you own more than one property, you will not be subject to payment on second or other properties. If the property is leased, the tenant is responsible for payment, even if the contract for the supply of electricity is in the property owner’s name.
Certain exemptions from TV licence payments are applicable; f you are aged 75 years old or over, and or your annual income does not exceed € 8,000 and or if you do not own a TV, you can claim an exemption. You will need to fill in a self-declaration form and send it to the Italian Inland Revenue office (agenzia delle entrate) in Turin. You can download the relevant form and instructions here: http://www.agenziaentrate.gov.it/wps/wcm/connect/27a0fe804405ffaa8229f3c434049f0d/Circolare+n.+46E_Allegato+n.+1.pdf?MOD=AJPERES&CACHEID=27a0fe804405ffaa8229f3c434049f0d.

More Italian bureaucracy!!
Clever way of ensuring people pay their RAI subscription (for radio & TV) linking it to your electric bill.
Does this apply to non Italian resident holiday home owners as well as permanent Italian residents?
It appears that we qualify for the exemption being over the age of 75 and don't wish to pay this subscrption if we don't have to. As non Italian speakers we never watch TV but use it for DVD's only.
Looking at the form it asks for your date of birth and the place you were born, your home address and I assume that in our case is the UK address?
The ID document requested to send would be our Passport?
I assume that the Codice Fiscale would then identify the address of our property in Calabria as it is linked on their computer system to our annual Tax submission and the IMU (or whatever it is called now) payments we give to our local Comune.
Can anyone answer these questions and give some help and advice in filling in the form. It doesn't look as straight forward as I had hoped from the Google translation of the form particularly on the Diachiara (Declaration) portion.

Hi david

yes it is due on all properties unless you have the exemption part covered. The cost is for the ability to have tv and radio whether it is used or not.

for the address just add the apartment address, passport is also fine for recognition document. The form is not that clear on the Declaration form but basically offers options (not including age)

i would just send it off with a passport and sign and date. Beware of one thing in that this could open the gates for back payment. We will not know this until later. Personally i would wait a little until they alter the document to a new model which would be clearer. The whole thing could be voided soon as the idea is good but as with many of these ideas Europe might point out it is not legal. my advice, wait and see.

Thanks for your advice but I am sending the form for my wife and myself with our passport copies as ID and see what happens.

I understand from an Italian friend of mine that if you are a non resident you do NOT have to have a television license. Your contract with Enel states whether you are a non resident or not.

Hi Lorica,
I didn't realise that Enel had different rates for resident and non-residents.
I have just checked my Enel bill and it does state that I am charged domestic non-resident D3 rate.
No doubt if one is charged for a TV license it would appear on the Enel bill.
I did post the Exempt Form off some weeks ago so we shall see if we will eventually get a reply.

Hi David

I understand the new Enel charge (to include TV license) won't start until July.

Hi Lorica,
I hope you are correct that non Italian residents are exempted, it'll make it much easier for holiday home owners.not having to deal with the Italian bureuacracy.
I will post the translation of the documents that the "Admin" had posted the link to Agenzia Entrante (Internal Revenue Services) re the TV fee for those who are interested. It doesn't mention on these documents that non Italian residents are exempted.

Hi brian 123 are you an Italian Resident since you had a TV Licence fee added to your Enel bill?

This is the post I sent out with the translation.

Hi brian123 and nvjjov251,
I received my Enel bill invoice earliar this month for June and July and there is nothing on it regarding the TV License fee
It could be that I had sent our exemption form for this TV License fee back in April of this year on the grounds of my wife and I who are 75 years +.

FYI this is a Google Translation of the Italian documents ie The translation of the Exemption Form that we had sent off plus explanatory notes as attachments that were on the link.
