It is unlikely that many taxpayers will pay off their debts with the state. From the latest report by the Unimpresa Study Center on folders tax collectors it appears that almost half of the warehouse would be “hardly cashable“. It is about 400 billion of euro on the total 999 accumulated at the end of 2020 and whose recovery absorbs public resources that could be invested more efficiently, making at least part of the sum disappear. For this we start talking about scrapping quater.
Folders, towards the scrapping quater? Why would it be necessary
By analyzing in detail the outstanding roles, it is also discovered that the 78% has an amount less than 1.000 euro. These 178 million files contribute to the total debt for alone 56 billion of Euro. Furthermore, of the total amount, 343 billion, therefore the 34,4%, correspond to tax claims of more than 10 years ago.
A firm makes it known that it is only recovered just over half, 55%, of the 16 million new bills issued each year. But what does this mean for the tax authorities?
Just think that attempting to recover positions below € 1,000 can prove to be particularly burdensome for the state, or in any case not convenient. The costs would often outweigh the benefits obtained from the final collection.
By the way well 133 billion of euro of the fiscal warehouse belong to natural persons deceased o to discontinued companies e fail, and other 152 billion to failing businesses. And for which, despite the factual irreversibility, time, money and human resources continue to be invested by the collection agents.
The solution could be to introduce it once again excerpt tax records that take these factors into account and eliminate the roles, starting with i repeat offenders with particularly low debts, in order to re-establish a relationship between the tax authorities and citizens and businesses in difficulty, which they evade because they are unable to pay.
Folders, towards the scrapping quater? What roles would it cover
The government would be moving in this direction, as announced in a hearing before the budget committees of the House and Senate by the minister Daniele Franco. The head of the Mef has made it known that the scrapping quater could soon arrive. The minister recently talked about Nadef and the extension of many bonuses, as we have explained to you here.
The new maneuver would affect the tax bills relating to the years 2018 e 2019, then to the pre-Covid period, with a new extension the terms of the notifications of these roles. The strategy would be to allow families and businesses to get back in good standing and start paying taxes again.
Among the hypotheses there is therefore the postponement of the delivery date of the new roles, those that, due to the pandemic, have remained in the drawers of the Revenue Agency. The scrapping quater could also provide for the elimination of sanctions e interests and the only payment, further in installments, of the tax due.
Towards scrapping quater? What happens to Covid folders
Ernesto Maria Ruffini, director of the Revenue Agency, has made it known that the folders relating to the period 2020 e 2021 interest 18 million of taxpayers, in particular natural persons.
Without a new decision by the Government, the delivery of these roles will begin next year, considering the resumption of the activities of the Tax Authority after almost two years of suspension of the sending of all acts of the financial administration.
All the roles and credits that have been formed during the difficult period of the health emergency are therefore ready to go, and could weigh in particular on the pockets of Italians already in debt to the State and who are unlikely, in the face of a new debt, they will be able to pay.
If, on the other hand, you are part of the taxpayer audience who had access to the scrapping ter (here our guide), you have to pay attention to the last payment date, which we have talked about here.
