Here's one for you, and kudos to the person who can truly answer it: Sure, you automatically pay the Canone RAI TV tax through your electric bill, but here's the zinger. If you don't have an electric bill one period or you have a credit and thus a negative bill, the Canone doesn't get billed to you because the electric company only collects that fee when you are paying money to your electric bill. Therefore, if you don't pay because you cannot, you are in arrears now on your Canone TV and subject to a fine.
It seems that you can pay this tax directly to the Agenzia delle Entrate with a wire transfer of funds(if you don't have an Italian bank account--I do not) about which they provide full instructions on their web site. There is also a form with which to pay this tax entitled the F24, a very simple form, with no instructions anywhere on how to upload this and/or send it to them. Great info all around on this website, except what you need to know.
Any ideas out there? My bill is due for the TV tax as indicated in my electric bill. Incidentally I don't own a TV, but honestly that's the least of my worries! Grateful for any insights or tips.
