    • Hi Anna
      As an Italian resident in receipt of pension income You can earn up to about Euro 8,000 per year by way of pension income without be liable to tax (providing you have no other income liable to tax at marginal rates). The exact amount of the threshold depends on your personal circumstances – eg. whether you have any other tax deductions or credits – e.g healthcare/pharmaceutical costs, qualifying home refurbishment/energy saving expenses etc. Above that amount you still get a tax credit for pension income but reduces in line with taxable income. All this presupposes yo do not qualify for the special regime for pensioners living in small towns in the South of Italy

  1. As a UK national now resident in Italy, my sole income is UK State Pension.
    Am I liable for Income Tax on this? If so I presume I can use the 7% flat tax for the South ( Scalea – Calabria ). Thanks.
