Will start from next March the new income meters that aims to further limit the action of the usual “scoundrels” who intend to evade the IRS. This time the system under study, much more detail than in the past, will fathom any discrepancies between the income received and the spending capacity of each contributor starting from the 2009 tax year . A step backward with an eye to the present and to the future, in short, that will be involved the Inland Revenue in control of situations more ambiguous.

But what are the factors to which attention will be given to whether the taxpayer really spend what you can afford to spend? This time, to tell the truth, was included in the new income meters pretty much everything. It starts from the most common goods such as the home and the means of transport, through the investments made ​​up to any costs incurred for restructuring , for furniture, for the costs of electricity for household appliances and even possessed.


Moving on the side of insurance, that’s the new income meters take into account those made ​​on the life, the theft and fire and the compulsory and voluntary contributions in addition to supplementary pensions. As for the education, however, the Inland Revenue will pay attention to a thousand and one details: expenses incurred for any nursery, master, rents for university headquarters, foreign language courses and study tours to any abroad. Attention to other expenses of a certain type as may be those relating to the purchase of jewelry, works of art, the allowance payable to the spouse in the event of separation and donations to charities.

But as you will, in particular, the control of so many variables in an area with more than 22 million households ? To simplify the matter, the Italian families will be ideally divided into 55 homogeneous groups within which fall types typical of the family. It starts from the single under the age of 35 years to get to the far more numerous families with more than three children. Further subdivision will cover the area of residence of all these families. Five areas ideal for subdivision: North East, North West, Centre, South and Islands.

At this point, everything is ready for the controls adopted by the State. For now, though, putting fear groundless. The tax assessment will not be made ​​indiscriminately against all families but only those in which the discrepancy between income received (and reported) and the ability of actual expenditure is clearly noticeable. When the deviation between the one and the other voice, however, is minimal, there will not be any investigation, while in case of deviation “average”, the names will be placed in a “waiting list” to understand the successive movements and act in each case accordingly.
