Rome, June 26 - Prime Minister Enrico Letta and
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, whose centre-right People of
Freedom (PdL) party is supporting the current left-right
coalition government, have agreed to postpone a controversial
increase in value added tax (VAT), ANSA sources said Wednesday
after the pair met late on Tuesday.
The decision on a 1% increase in the top band of VAT from
21% to 22% has been reportedly pushed back till September, with
the possibility of yet another postponement until December.
So the rise will not come into effect next month as
originally scheduled.
The decision will be approved at a cabinet meeting on
Wednesday, the sources said.
Both VAT and a highly unpopular housing tax, IMU, have been
problem issues for Letta, a member of the centre-left Democratic
Left (PD) party, with the PdL party threatening to pull the plug
on executive if IMU is not scrapped and the VAT increase
averted.
