QUERY: Italy / Tax benefits for migrant family members abroad / Remittances
Hello everybody, my name is Arturo, I was born in Perù and have been living in Italy since 2002. I am working as a Tax Advisor for people and enterprises from Genoa (Italy).
Three years ago I found in the Italian fiscal law opportunity for immigrants residents in Italy.
It grants to immigrant citizens the possibility to recognize their dependent family members living outside Italy (in the origin country). This acknowledgment allows the reimbursement of their taxes paid up to 800 Euros every year to any family member.
Think about this: how many family members will be recognize for every person that sends remittances every day, month, year, not just in Italy...
However, this opportunity has been only established for 3 years (a experimental fiscal law 2007-2009), unfortunately the number of people are few that know about it and that send remittances in Italy. For this reason I am carrying forward a campaign of fiscal acknowledgment, informing and orienting immigrants about the fiscal law to the first generation immigrants resident in the main Italian cities.
The question: does this tax advantage exist in any other countries in the EU and beyond?
I know that this argument is complex for these lines, however please visit: www.consulenzavargas.com for further information.
