Persons with severe disabilities who book a hotel in Rome will no longer have to pay tourist tax: it becomes official, with the proceeding of the Capitoline Assembly, how much Already arranged last July With a proposal approved by the Council and the Tourism, Roma Capital and Budget Commissions.
With the amendment in the residency tax regulation, both people with disabilities and their caregivers will no longer have to pay the tax. Simultaneously, other measures contained in the resolution of the Council are also realized, namely one-time contribution for housing facilities, aimed at absorbing the cost of commission related to the collection of contributions through POS. Contribution, which in no case may exceed 1.5% of the total amount collected and paid to Roma Capital.
Both measures are aimed at restarting and supporting the tourism sector, meeting both the demands of municipalities – who have repeatedly pressed for exemptions to caregivers – and those of trade unions. In the case of contributions for transition with pos, in addition, it is aimed at combating tax evasion, as it will be paid only to those companies that are in compliance with the tax obligations.
“The proposal approved today includes two measures that put Rome on the most advanced front in terms of inclusivity and strengthen administrative efficiency,” said Sylvia Skocze, deputy mayor and councilor for the budget of Roma Capital. , Exemption from payment of contributions provided for people with severe disabilities is a gesture that makes Rome more just, welcoming and supportive, a gesture made even stronger with the expansion of provision for caregivers. In addition, the support contribution to hospitality businesses in relation to compensation for the interchange commission reinforces action in favor of a strategic sector such as tourism for our city.
“This provision retrieves and underscores the inclusive and welcoming business that Rome has always had, but which the previous administration has been blamed for – the Rome Capital’s Council for Tourism, Major Events, Fashion and Sport, Alessandro Onorato – Exemption from paying in residence tax, people with severe disabilities are a socially sensitive issue as well as an incentive for many families to come to our city.However, as far as residence through POS As regards the flat-rate contribution relating to the collection of tax, it is a question of fairness, given that in this case the operators and structures of the sector act only as ‘debt collectors’, who forward the entire amount to the administration. So I don’t think it is right that till now they have to pay bank collection commission and for that we have taken the measures with this determination.”
