We own a two appartment and have been paying 92.00 a year (not each) for the last three years. We have now been told that on the IMU form we were classified as residents. With us being non-residents we are now told that we should have been paying 261.00 a year. Does this sound correct?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Bobby,
I've also had a similar notification and am also wondering if the rate we have been paying is inaccurate or otherwise. We bought in 2008 so it's now an awful lot to pay!
Perhaps we have both bought in the same location and the notary has registered our properties incorrectly?

Hi all,

there is indeed a big difference in council/imu tax wether you are resident or not, and it is your responsibility to ensure you are registered correctly. Some agents and builder, to help make a sale, will also have you declare to be a resident so that you can save 6% on the VAT/IVA upon purchase. It's not so bad to pay the difference and a little fine if you sort it out in time, but with compound interest etc things can add up.

The Italian authorities do not normally notify you, but will outsource it to the much hated Equitalia incasso service once the amount is above a certain threshold.

If you are uncertain, I would advise anyone reading to check their situation at the local council to avoid surprises.

Fortunately the amounts are nowhere near what you are probably used to paying in the UK, but it's going up fast every year.

Hope this helps,

Dennis.
