As part of the recently installed Italian government’s somewhat controversial “amnesty programme” a number of ongoing Italian tax assessment, investigation and litigation proceedings can be settled at a discount. Also worthy of notice is the programme to enable taxpayers to present supplementary returns amending errors or omissions in returns filed up to 31 October 2017. A 20% substitute tax generally applies to the additional reported income/profits declared. This procedure may also be advantageous for taxpayers who have failed to disclose non-Italian assets in section RW of the return, permitting disclosure of assets with payment of a much smaller amount that would otherwise be due under the standard penalty regime.
