Rome, August 29 - Italians who rent their homes
will be unfairly hit by the replacement for a home-owners' tax
that tenants will have to pay too, an association warned
Thursday.
"The new Service Tax will bump up tenants' costs by 1,000
euros a year," said the Union of Italian Tenants.
This would heighten the wave of evictions already sweeping
Italy, it said, given that 80% of evictions are because of
unpaid rent.
Student groups added that the new tax, which will supersede
the controversial IMU from next year, would make it much harder
for students in digs to get by.
The government responded by saying that the tax would be
"modulated" to lessen the impact on renters and two billion
euros of the estimated five billion euros in Service Tax revenue
would be set aside to help them.
It also said the tax might be different after parliamentary
debate on next year's budget, in which it is included.
