Invoices, here is the new tax added to the Rai license fee: did you know?


The Rai license fee represents a “persistent” theme for the Italian population: in fact, this term indicates a real tax which applies to the owners of devices capable of reproducing multimedia content. Since the Rai is a public service and therefore controlled, albeit partially by the state, the fee has been paid for years by a limited category of people.

In fact, almost all of the Italian population is equipped with a television set, and considering that the license fee does not necessarily apply on the basis of its use but only with simple possession, only a very small part has paid the bulletin.

Net of many “rumors” on a transfer of the rent, or at least a suppression of the energy supply, this one will also be confirmed for 2022, whereas it should “disappear” from the electricity bill in 2023, according to European directives which require it. Member States not to be able to combine television fees with a provision which is not directly related to them.

It seems more than an idea to associate another tax often evaded with the energy bill, namely the TARi, the waste tax: we are currently in the field of hypotheses, but it could be the “new” tax which appears on energy bills, instead of the royalty.
