Italian TV licence evasion falls from 30% to 4%

Friday 10 February 2017 | 11:17 CET | News
The decision to add the Italian TV licence to household electricity and gas bills has resulted in a fall in the evasion of the tax from 30 percent in 2015 to 4 percent in 2016, according to the country's economic ministry. The annual fee was cut to EUR 100 from EUR 113 and added to energy bills on 01 July, resulting in the collection of EUR 2.1 billion, some EUR 500 million more than in 2015. In view of the better than expected results of the new system, the Italian government intends to further reduce the annual fee to EUR 90 starting this year.
