Tourism: Tourists with disabilities in Rome will not pay tax

and contribute to housing facilities

Green light on behalf of the Council and the competent commissions for a resolution to revise the regulation of the residence tax, which exempts people with severe disabilities from payment, as also requested by the Capitoline Assembly.

With this provision, a one-time contribution towards housing facilities has also been established for the purpose of offsetting the interchange charges relating to collection of stay tax from electronic transactions. In any case, the contribution cannot exceed 1.5% of the amount collected and paid to Roma Capital.

“With this resolution, we fulfill a specific request from trade associations – explained Mayor Roberto Gualtieri – both by adapting the regulation to exempt people with disabilities, and supporting companies in costs related to the electronic payment of tourism tax. By doing .. tourism – the mayor concluded – is recovering and it is our duty to keep up with the companies that have suffered the consequences of the pandemic in recent years”.

“Tourist attendance has returned to pre-Covid levels – explained Alessandro Onorato – Councilor for Tourism for Major Events, Fashion and Sport – above all thanks to investments in a new way of promoting the Eternal City in the world: welcome, Helpful and inclusive. This provision is part of initiatives that we have undertaken to revamp and support the entire region, which is a strategic asset of the city’s economy. Returning to host great sporting, fashion and culture events and great live music festivals, we have returned to Rome, which it deserves internationally”.

“We hold on to two issues that we consider fundamental – said Sylvia Scozez, deputy mayor and councilor for the budget – to respond to operators with disabilities ranging from discounting the cost of card transactions to neutralizing card transaction costs. , and on the other strengthen the fight for tax evasion and our collection capacity”.
