  • The new 2019 season of the pre-filled tax return has just started with 960 million data. From April 15 is possible to view your own tax return, while from 2 May everyone can send it


    Starting from Monday afternoon, April 15, the pre-filled tax return is online. The 730 precompiled form can then be accepted and/or integrated and sent directly via web to the Revenue Agency starting from 2 May and until 23 July. In addition to the data already available, this year have been reported in the pre-filled tax return also those sent by external bodies, such as doctors' offices, pharmacies, banks, insurance companies, universities and by employers through a unique certification.

    Ever more data are precompiled reaching almost one billion records  - This year the tax return is even more complete: in fact, the information on the past few years includes the expenses on condominium parts that give the right to the green bonus and the amounts paid from 1 January 2018 for insurance against disasters, stipulated for residential properties. Overall, the basket of pre-compiled data reaches 960 million and exceeds the total of data loaded in 2018 by 3.8%. Even the online assistance has been extended.

    The numbers in details - The number of data, approximately 960 million, has increased and has traveled to the Agency's servers. Of these, 78% - 754 million - relate to healthcare costs incurred by citizens and communicated to the Agency by pharmacies, medical offices, clinics, hospitals, 4.7% more than those transmitted in 2018. In second place in order of frequency we find insurance premiums, just over 92 million, and the CU, over 61 million. The data relating to the bonus to renovate homes gained 16 million refunds, in addition to almost 6 million related to condominium renovations. Scrolling down the list of the most frequent data, we find more than 8 million data on interest expense, 4.6 million relating to social security contributions. Finally, around 4.4 million data refer to refunds of healthcare costs and one million less, 3.4, targeted to university expenses. Information on contributions for domestic workers (3.2 million) closes the number reported.

    It's now even easier to modify the deductible expenses - From 2019 is possible to choose the simplified compilation mode, as an alternative to the traditional mode, to modify in a guided way the whole section-E of the declaration, for example to add e deductible charge that does not appear among those already entered by the Agency or change the amounts of expenses incurred.

    The calendar of the precompiled tax return - From the afternoon of the April 15th, the precompiled will be available both for those who present the 730 model and for those who present Income model. Starting from this date, both the taxpayers and their professional intermediaries will be able to view the declaration and the list of available information, indicating the data entered and not entered and the relative information sources. The 730 can be sent starting from May 2 and until July 23, 2019. The pre-compiled Income model can also be changed from May 2, but may be transmitted from May 10 to September 30, 2019.


  • The last 2018 report on the activities performed by the Revenue Agency: Italy at the forefront of e-invoicing and tax compliance


    The first successful results in the launch and implementation of electronic-invoicing has occupied the central scene during the presentation of the goals achieved by the Tax Administration in 2018. Indeed, the results reached by the VAT electronic invoicing, or e-invoicing, which became broadly effective for transactions carried out by resident companies as from 1 January 2019, have gone beyond all expectations, so much so that this new fiscal tool has proved almost instantly extremely useful in tackling tax evasion and tax fraud. In details, to date, around 2.7 million operators have sent 350 million e-invoices, and only 3.85% have been rejected by the system.

    This is demonstrated by the fact that, in just over two months, complex analysis carried out thanks to the e-invoices and their matching with data from the web portal managed by the tax authorities, have brought to light an intricate system of frauds put in practice through false and fictitious invoices between "bogus" companies. Finally, fraudulent VAT credits of EUR 688 million were discovered and denied.

    The sums recovered through the fight against tax evasion - A greater tax compliance, direct payments and the collection of tax debts bring to the recovery of € 16.2 billion, in addition to € 3 billion in "extraordinary" extra-revenue from other tax forgiveness initiatives. In details, these sums were collected through direct payments (+ 10%), letters for the compliance (+ 38%) and tax debts collection (+ 4%).

    When the tax authorities make the country more palatable even for investors - The Italian Revenue Agency also contribute to making the country more attractive for investors: last year, 27 responses were provided to new investments, which will lead to greater resources for around 15 billion euro and 13 thousand new jobs.

    Taxes are ever more digital - While the digital Revenue strategy is advancing, 8.4 million citizens are registered for online tax services and, has said above, the e-invoicing continues its "break-in", many other online tools have been developing during last year. A real network of fiscal services all designed to improve the relations with taxpayers. Particularly, is also thanks to these new instruments that the Revenue Agency has been able to refund to households and businesses € 17.5 billion (+ 8% compared to the previous year).
