The Legislation of the Special Tax Regime for Inpatriates

According to Article 16 of the Legislative Decree no. 147/2015, an important tax relief is granted on the income from employee, self-employment or business activity produced in Italy by workers who transfer their residence in Italy.

The tax relief provides that such income is taxable to the extent of 30% to 10% for the first five years, and with the possibility to tax the income from 50% to 10% for the next five years only if certain conditions apply.

For workers who have transferred their tax residence in Italy before April 30, 2019, it is necessary to verify the presence of the requirements of the previous version of the tax relief.
