When it comes to car taxation, the Italian is always a bit 'perplexed', for many reasons it is mainly not to digest this load at all and then, many people do not know some basic things.
Let's take an example, yet many of you do not know that the car tax can also be paid in installments. Many do not know that this tax is not because of circulation, but because of possession. It is clear that some rules can change from region to region, we see details together.
When the recipe starts
A frequently recurring question is: non-payment of car tax goes into effect prescription? Yes, but you have to wait three years. If during the three years after the non-payment the Fisco no request is made to the taxpayer, the seal comes on prescription and the owner of the car no longer has to pay the bill fee. As determined by the law 296/06, the period of three years to be taken into account must be counted from January 1 thereafter to those in which the stamp has expired.
The car tax is not paid in more and more cases and cases, with the exemptions that increase with the latest news about the canceled payment and the exemption for 3-5 years locally in different regions that are increasing. And then other standards are expected, both in other regions and locally, as well as nationally and also the European Union.
The car tax is one of the taxes that the Italians have viewed less favorably. There are, however, several reasons for both national and regional exemptions (which always tend to increase more). In the latter cases it mainly depends on the purchased or used car and grows mainly to adapt the vehicle to less polluting models.
Exemptions up to 5 years or for other reasons.
The basic rule is clear: they are called to pay the car tax 2018 to all owners of a car, even if the vehicle is not used and remains in the garage. Pending the question of whether one of the many reform proposals goes to the port (including the introduction of a European car tax), the calculation of the amount to be paid will change based on the strength of the vehicle and the region of the country. residence. Remember that car taxation is a regional tax and that every administration can therefore apply very specific rules and that must be paid at the latest on the last day of the month following that on which the previous seal expires. There are some cases where full or partial exemption from the payment of this tax.
Generally, there are exemptions for disabled, disabled and disabled people (with the following wording: it is invalid with severe limitation of walking ability or multi-inputs (Article 30 paragraph 7 of Law 388/2000); hybrid cars; electric cars, discounts for cars & # 39; s powered exclusively by LPG and CNG In addition, there is no payment for the 2018 car tax in detail if the vehicle is registered for a disabled person or for a person who has a disabled person person, for severe pathologies that affect deaf-stomism, mental disability with associated admission, motor disability with vehicle modification, physical disability with serious impairment.
The exemption from the payment of the motor vehicle tax is for one vehicle with the faculty at the discretion of the person concerned who must state in the request for exemption the corresponding registration plate, which can be substitutable when the vehicle is replaced. In addition to these cases, the reduced traffic tax for vehicles over three hundred years old is added for personal or promiscuous use. No car tax for resources registered with non-profit organizations, ambulances and vehicles used to transport people in certain conditions or organs and blood. Even the historic cars or those of historic and collectible interest registered in one of the registers Asi, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia and FMI are exempt from paying the amount of car tax 2018.
Under the partial exemptions for those who buy or transform a car in LPG or CNG, that of the Puglia region, Tuscany, Trento is still valid, where these drivers have a total of one quarter of the total car tax. In the Campania region, there are 5 years full exemption for car taxation for electric cars. In Lombardy, for example, pluggable vehicles, which are also being recharged, the oil is external half. Three years full exemption, however in Lazio for its petrol-electric or electric-hydrogen hybrid.
The next will be the year of the reform of car taxation? Perhaps because two forces are active on change. On the one hand, there is that of the government that plans to reduce emissions, also by providing higher taxes for the most polluting vehicles. On the other hand, there is also Europe that wants to standardize the rules for all countries. The combined action of the two managers could therefore lead to a revised tax that is in fact related to possession. Irrespective of their use, motorists are in fact asked to pay what the region wants. And in the case of vehicles with a large cylinder capacity, the addition of the super seal, received by the state, is activated.
This government will not hold the hand on the front of the car & # 39; s and the news of the sector. Starting with the age-old issue of car taxation and its reform, if not its cancellation. The problem also ended at the table of Europe, given the will of the EU's executive power to standardize the rules.
There is the impression that an acceleration can be achieved when changing what is actually a tax on the possession of the vehicle in the sign of respect for the environment. In essence, car tax could be linked more and even better to the contamination of the product. As is to be expected, the increase in excise duties on diesel alone is also considered, also to finance measures of a fiscal nature, but always to reflect on the discouraging use of diesel vehicles. Another hot topic, which could soon become very hot, is that of insurance. , with the manager who could insist on the introduction of prizes for those who do not commit violations.
More: in the government contract between the League and 5 Star Movement, we read that the national infrastructure plan for charging vehicles with electricity should become a dynamic tool with which problems related to possible shortcomings can be quickly intercepted and resolved. infrastructures, both national and local, to actively contribute to the development of electric mobility.
Precisely this is another important point – along with the review of car taxation and insurance reform – coupled with the need to provide public car sharing spaces in light of the increasing quota of electric cars & # 39; s in the fleet.On the agenda there are also incentives to purchase low-polluting cars & # 39; s or hybrid and electric vehicles and contextual demolition of cars & # 39; s dated and fueled by gasoline or diesel and stop the increase of the VAT (also essential for the possible purchase of a new car) with the sterilization of the safeguard clauses.
If the motor vehicle tax in Italy is calculated on the basis of the capacity of the vehicle – the higher the rate, the higher the amount to be paid – the amount of the European vehicle is linked to the kilometers traveled during the year. The will of the Transport Committee of the European Parliament is to connect the car with something less to own and a little more to its concrete use. And the same concept would apply to all countries, including Italy. However, in line with recent promotions and investments in the sector, in addition to the kilometers traveled, the other parameter that influences the formation of the amount to be paid will be the level of environmental pollution produced by the car.
Authentic is an electronic device that is suitable for detecting the distance traveled, similar to the black box, which is now used for insurance purposes, to detect the information that is useful for the purpose of the calculation. If the intentions are clear, the uncertainty is rather related to the timing, as a package of changes of this magnitude will probably not see the light in a sharp turn or already next year. Easier to believe that European car taxation can see the light in a few years. It is the intention of the Transport Committee of the European Parliament to introduce it in 2023, with a first experiment for heavy vehicles and vehicles weighing more than 2.4 tonnes.
In the next three years we would proceed to the implementation of the entire fleet. European legislation, if the measure proposed by the European Parliament's Transport Committee would get the green light from the European Council and the approval of the 27 Member States of the European Union, we should wait 2026 for the latest introduction.
Car tax: payments and deadlines
The car tax is a tax on the property (another thing is the road tax, which only applies to so-called "historical" vehicles, which are at least 30 years old and with specific requirements), ie a property tax (probably unconstitutional) because not related to the value of the "heritage", but only to technical characteristics. The "car tax" is actually calculated on the basis of the capacity of the car (expressed in kilowatts) and its impact on the environment (Euro 0, Euro 1, Euro 2, etc.). Both data, ie power and emission level, are stated on the vehicle registration certificate. The tax is payable for 12 months, or until the first due date only for first-registration cars; payments for quarters are no longer allowed. The tax is due by the holder of the PRA (Public Automotive Register) of the vehicle; the registration burden of the PRA lies with the owner of the vehicle and must take place within 60 days of the registration or authentication of the seller's signature in the case of used vehicles. Eye on expiry In general, this tax must be paid at the latest on the last day of the month following that on which the previous payment expired. Since each region can vary the decay of the seal, it is better to check for payment, because in case of delays you have to pay interest and penalties, while in the case of an advance it is not easy to get a fee . The tax is the regional responsibility, which collects the full amount, according to the criteria of a national law. The PRA, managed by the ACI, is not the tax collector, but only the archive of the payments, and the ACI delegations are cash register & # 39; s. On the internet there are several alternatives for the calculation of the stamp on the basis of the plate which, in case of payment after the due date, can also indicate the amount of fines and interest to be paid. On the website www.aci.it it is possible to calculate the stamp on the license plate of the vehicle, calculate the amount due, depending on the region where the owner lives, check the expiry date and pay online with a supplement for the BOLLONET service. equal to 1.2% of the tax that is added to € 1.87 fixed commission. For a tax of € 200, the service therefore costs € 4.27, or 2.13% of the tax, comparable to the costs and inconveniences of the other permitted forms of payment. The service is free for Aci members Pay the car tax The car tax can be paid in tobacconists, in the Aci delegations, the many car rental companies and in some banks (also via ATM or via internet banking). In Swiss Post, in most cases a bulletin has to be filled in with the postal account number of the region. In the regions that are affiliated with the Aci, you will find the already published payment slip at the post offices: Abruzzo, Basilicata, Emilia Romagna, Lazio, Lombardy, Puglia, Tuscany, Umbria (plus the provinces of Bolzano and Trento). Apart from a few banks, all payment methods involve the payment of a commission: cigar shop, Aci offices and motor insurance require a fixed amount of € 1.87. The sites of the individual regions & # 39; s, if they offer this type of service, have different rates, often as a percentage of the amount to be paid.
