Permanent residence

Abitazione principale

To acquire property in Italy and turn it into one’s permanent residence gives you tax advantages, at least at first glance; instead of paying the usual 10 % of tax on land acquisition only 4 % are payable and the yearly local property tax will be waived. However, it is an essential prerequisite that the owner of the property spends at least 180 days a year in this property and consequently pays taxes in Italy on his total income.
