“Today, thanks to the Government of President Meloni, a great result has been achieved for Italians living abroad. With the approval of the Agenda with the first signing of Di Giuseppe, the government undertook to evaluate the possibility of making the appropriate regulatory changes in order to extend the exemption from the payment of the single municipal tax (IMU) provided for the first property, also to Italian citizens regularly registered with the AIRE”. A statement from FDI announced this. “This change – he continues – goes in the direction of what I had promised in the election campaign, a direction different from what was done by the previous Draghi government, where, with the approval of article 1, paragraph 743, law 30 December 2021, n.234, the centre-left even reduced from 50% to 37.5% the payment of the IMU for pensioners not resident in the national territory but owners of properties not leased or given on loan. The same agenda also allowed to avoid the potential problems of interpretation of the agenda presented by the Democratic Party, with which, by committing the government to “the amendments to the current legislation aimed at equating to the main dwelling, for IMU purposes, the properties owned in Italy where citizens and citizens registered AIRE have residence” would have created a dyscrasia because the members of the A.I.R.E. cannot have a residence in Italy, as well as nullifying this important and historic political result. I can only thank – concludes Di Giuseppe – my parliamentary colleagues and the government for having shown the will to consider the interests of the many Italians living abroad, Italians whose interests I have the honour and the burden of representing”.
