Imposta Sostitutiva/Substitute Tax

The rates shown above apply only to  income which is not subject to imposta sostititva (“substitute tax”) which applies in place of the main national income, regional and municipal tax shown above. Whether substitute tax depends on the type of income, the treatment under law and, in some case, the election of the taxpayer.

Examples of income that are subject to tax at the rates shown in the above table are: 

  • income from employment
  • pension income (except for qualifying pensions in the South of Italy (see below)
  • income from self employment
  • rent from Italian property (where the option to substitute tax is not taken)
  • rent from non Italian situated real estate 
  • royalty income 
  • miscellaneous income

Examples of income that are liable to substitute tax are:

  • income from pensions where the option to substitute tax at 7% has been taken (NB. if the option has been taken the 7% will apply to all income).
  • income from investments, interest, dividends, capital gains  – generally taxed at 26% flat rate. Lower rates may apply.  
  • income from self employment carried out under the “regime forfettario” flat tax regime for small businesses
  • income from renting Italian property for which the option for taxation at a flat rate of 21% on gross receipts has not been taken (cedolare secco).
The substitute tax applies to investment income and rental income only where the person receiving the relevant income does not conduct a business activity (e.g financial trading or carrying out a property letting business).
