The new Budget Law approved by the Government of Giorgia Meloni has reserved a pleasant change for many Italians. In fact, in many cases it will be possible to no longer pay road fines and other tax bills. Why was this innovation made possible? Who is it for? Here’s everything you need to know on this topic.
Anyone, at least once in their life, will have run into some traffic violation. Many times, in fact, it can happen that you are not very careful and do not see, for example, the no-parking sign or other similar things. Not all traffic fines, however, they refer to facts of minor importance. You can go from the slightest infraction to more serious ones, which put the safety of everyone in the middle of the road at risk.
Respect for Traffic laws it is essential to ensure maximum safety for everyone when you are behind the wheel of a car or on board a motorcycle. Pedestrians must also respect certain rules and act as correctly as possible – for example, crossing pedestrian crossings in complete safety.
Especially in some historical periods with many price increases in every sector – as is happening now – it may happen that you have to postpone the payment of a traffic fine. But what will happen in this 2023, which started a few days ago? Here’s everything you need to know about a particular aspect of traffic fines, and more.
Didn’t you pay an old traffic fine? Here’s what’s happening this year
From 1 January 2023, the new government has chosen to stop cutting excise duties on petrol. A move that many did not like. There are also some attempts to speculate on petrol prices, practiced by unscrupulous petrol station owners. But there is another newsinstead of will please many Italians. It concerns traffic fines. What are we referring to? Here are all the details about it.
The Government has chosen to apply a real one amnesty in reference to fines and taxes not paid in the period between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2015. Such a move allows you to remove all tax bills up to 1000 euros. As anticipated, all the unpaid traffic fines of that particular historical period also fall within this sphere.
But do you really not have to pay even one euro for the old fines? In fact, that’s not quite the case. Indeed, they will come cancel the penalties and all default interest accumulated over many years of late payment. The fine, on the other hand, must be paid no later than 31 July 2023. In this way, it will be possible to take advantage of this amnesty approved by the Government.
If the debtor does not yet have the opportunity to pay off the debt, then he can choose to pay it all in 18 installments. An interest of 2% will then be applied to the amount.
As mentioned, the law refers to each tax bill. So, even those in reference to the car tax not paid in that particular historical period mentioned above.
This amnesty has the advantage of helping many Italians in difficulty. The scrapping of all tax pending is part of the “fiscal peace” desired by the Meloni Government. A move designed to improve the general situation and to make the situation of serious tension that has arisen between individual citizens and each tax entity more malleable. We will see if the situation between Italians and the Revenue Agency improves in the coming months.
