Tax guide published in Arabic

Italy’s tax collection agency has produced a tax guide in Arabic, as well as several other foreign languages, to help immigrant workers pay their taxes. The 28-page guide can be downloaded from the tax agency’s website, and is available in Arabic, Romanian, Serbo-Croatian, and Italian. “The guide for foreigners contains key information on taxation, personal tax codes and VAT numbers, as well as the purchase and rental of properties, tax returns and rebates, inheritance, and communication of tax irregularities,” the agency said on its website. The initiative is part of a plan by the government to clamp down on rampant tax evasion in Italy.
