Loans for the payment of taxes for the municipalities of Sardinia
The flood that hit Sardinia last 18 and 19 November is only one, and unfortunately not the last in order of time, of the disasters that are affecting the country.
To help at least in a small way the sixty-one municipalities of the island hit by the flood, the State has allocated funds to finance soft loans aimed at paying taxes, both for private citizens and for the companies in the affected areas.
Now let’s see how the loan works and who can apply for it.
Citizens who had their registered or operational headquarters (for companies) or residence, in one of the municipalities affected, can take advantage of them on 18 November 2013. The loan, which will allow the payment of taxes to be postponed without interest or additional penalties, can be requested by completing a form made available by the Revenue Agency. The compilation takes place exclusively online through the program provided free of charge by the Agency itself and can be carried out directly by the interested party or by the authorized subjects as a. The application will contain the precise data of all the payments you wish to finance and must be kept for the subsequent request for funding.
Subsequent to the online transmission of the request, it is necessary to present a copy (and receipt of presentation) to the parties providing the loan, together with a self-certified document relating to the damage suffered due to the flood which highlights the actual origin of the damage.
All types of taxes and payments due between November 18 and December 20 2013 are affected by the financing; therefore, payments related to tax assessments can also be included, even if previously issued but expiring in the indicated period. Payment slippage applies to all citizens or companies of the affected municipalities and therefore not only to those who request funding. In the case of a loan request, the sum must be repaid within 24 months, with the assumption of the relative guarantees by the State.
It is possible to download the template to be submitted by clicking on this link while the compilation instructions are available here.
Attention: as established by the Ministry of the Economy and Finance, the suspension concerns only the taxes expiring in the period 18/11 – 20/12/13, for which the taxes with subsequent expiry must be regularly paid and penalties and interests will be applied for non-compliance.
To receive more information about the loan and for any updates in this regard, we invite you to consult the Revenue Agency’s website and the page concerning the flood funding, on the same site, where any changes or updates to the measures themselves.
