Residence and the manovra
There is a hugely important element to the manovra published yesterday. For people who took residence in Italy to get prima casa, but dont actually live here...From 2012 you will pay 7/1000 on the value of any property owned OUTSIDE ITaly. This applies to residents - so it might well be worth your while thinking about whether it is worth it having prima casa. For those of you thinking of buying taking prima casa is now so fraught with complications, it is worth paying the extra at atto for some peace of mind. Obviously the budget has yet to be voted on, but as of today its in there.
