Failure to collect taxes and penalties will not depend on the problem of tax evasion, but on the delay of the municipal administration. Deputy mayor and councilor for the budget, Sylvia Skócz, admitted this before the city council yesterday, responding to the opposition’s comments: “I did not say that Roman does not want to pay, often the bill does not come: We have to change the whole collection system. It is not a question of dues, but of our delay.
According to the councilor the capital’s “difference between fixed and levied fines is an endemic problem”. For this reason, a significant portion of the “over five billion provisions for doubtful funds” is reserved for trespassing and fines. The tax on waste, in particular, is “very important: it is worth 1.62 billion in the provision of the Fund for 2021” – Deputy Mayor specified – and 1.6 billion proven and unexplained active residuesWith consequences for citizens: It takes away the resources from the services and creates pain in the management of the city. We need an “immediate response” to the councillor, who said he wants to change the collection system “within the year”.

Of these, a portion “was already used as alleged surplus in November”. According to Scozze’s words, therefore, “we can say that the budget of the Municipality of Rome is in balance and secure without problems of cash and payments, but with some difficulties in terms of income and spending capacity. The cash balance as on 31st December is 937 million”.
Despite the positive opinion on the document’s results, however, the head of financial statements pointed out that “there are some elements indicating a situation that needs to change quickly and there are elements of misery. The first concern is with the earnings position: our Nearby is a cluster of active residues that is equivalent to 9.5 billion. For committed and unspent resources, the total amount is 2.8 billion “, And then there’s the problem of fine provisions, including fines and unpaid fines: «These are resources available but we can’t use, and this – Schoczyz concluded – is a problem to be solved. There is a provision for disputes equal to 207 million and various types of potential debts equal to 366 million.
