New land tax?
Please has anyone heard of a new tax entitled 'survalenza' or similar? My husband has some land which a firm of architects is keen to buy - but at a price well below the catastal value. In an apparent effort to persuade him to sell quickly one of the architects has told him that a new fee (of euro 2000) had to be paid, and the land remeasured, by the end of June 2012 and he called it 'survalenza'. He is aware that the IMU payment has already been paid. Incredibly the architect then went on to say that if the payment is not made by the end of June the fee will rise to around euro10.000. The land is currently valued at less than euro 50,000!! Any ideas would be most welcome.
