The catalog of the main contents of the first budget law of the government Melons and this. Refinancing, replications, extensions of measures conceived by predecessors. Years in opposition are evidently not enough to be found “ready” with original ideas. Presenting the provision, the premier claimed that “in just a month this government has written a maneuver that tells one political vision“. But, on closer inspection, the only signs of discontinuity I am the announcement of the stop al Basic income in 2024 and the reverse on many for traders who do not accept the electronic money.

The package against energy price increases – Total continuity with the executive that fell in the summer. For the first quarter of 2023, the zeroing of general system charges in the bill, the cut in VAT on gas, the tax credits for energy-intensive and gas-intensive consumers and for small businesses (which rise respectively from 40 to 45%) are confirmed and refinanced and 30 to 35%). The social good energy and gas, which Draghi had extended to families with Isee (Indicator of the equivalent economic situation) between 8,200 and 12 thousand euros, it will also go to the nuclei with Isee up to 15 thousand. The only changes are on the revenue front: the taxation of extra profits is set to increase and will be applied to profits, as requested by the EU Commission. And comes the price cap on revenues from energy produced from renewables and other sources with lower costs than gas, including carbone.

The tax wedge – Meloni reproposes the 2% cut of the contributions paid by workers with gross incomes below 35 thousand euros, in force since last July. Only for incomes under 20,000 euros does the relief rise to 3%, with benefits that remain very low (a maximum of 30 euros per month). A year ago, the Fdi leader had criticized the Draghi government’s choice to dedicate only a small part of the 8 billion available for the tax reform starter to reducing contributions. And in July, interviewed by Only 24 Hourshad guaranteed that the 16 billion cut requested by Confindustria one could have done: “Since the beginning of the Covid emergency we have spent 200 billion in deficit, do you really think that 16 billion could not be found for the wedge?”.

The single check – The prime minister has announced a 50% increase in the single allowance for the child’s first year of life. The increase will last three years for large families. However, the aid for families, which replaces all the previous concessions, has existed since March 2022. The draft enabling law on the matter was approved during the Conte 2 government and the measure went fully operational in March 2022, with Draghi. Which also reduced the VAT on female sanitary pads from 22 to 10%: Meloni has announced a further cut to 5%, which will also concern baby products.

Hiring incentives – Forza Italia is claiming as “idea of Silvio Berlusconi” the decontribution of up to 6 thousand euros for new hires under 35. Meloni said that the contributions for those who hire will also be zeroed donne. This too is far from new, but it does not go back to the governments of the former Knight: exactly follows the incentives introduced by the Conte 1 government in the budget law for 2021. Ditto for the relieve to those who place citizens’ income recipients in the company: they have been envisaged since 2019, when the subsidy was born.

La flat tax – L‘raising from 65 thousand to 85 thousand euros of the revenue ceiling below which the self-employed can request the application of the fixed rate of 15% it will disappoint some center-right voters, given that the promise was to bring the threshold to 100 thousand, but it is undoubtedly a first implementation of the electoral announcements aimed at VAT numbers. The fact is, however, that to introduce in Italy the flat tax dear to the Lega it was the yellow-green Conte 1 government in 2019 (until then the flat-rate regime had lower revenue limits and provided for a series of other requirements related to workers’ expenses and the costs of instrumental assets). According to theto the committee that writes the annual report on tax evasion, the measure has induced taxpayers to “self-select“, i.e. a do everything to stay below the threshold of the 65 thousand euros. With relative repercussions on the figures hidden from the tax authorities.

The excerpt of folders and the cap on cash – Even the scrapping of folders under 1000 euros delivered to the collection agent between 2000 and 2015 follows the excerpt approved by Count 1 at the end of 2018. The installments for those who have declared but not paid, have not declared, have received an assessment notice or are already in dispute with the tax authorities – according to the advances of the Deputy Minister with responsibility for Finance Maurice Leo – instead they closely resemble those put in place over the years by Renzi, Gentiloni and then Conte. All time with disappointing results for the exchequer. Again Renzi (2016) also dates the latest increase in the cash limit from 1,000 to 3,000 euros, which according to Bank of Italy, the share of the illegal economy has increased.

Pensions – Silenced Matthew Salvini, that kept pushing for the very expensive 41 quotain the field of pensions the majority has opted for a new one-off: only in 2023 will it be possible to leave work with 41 years of contributions and at least 62 years of age, the so-called “quota 103”. An intervention of minimal scope, considering that the potential audience does not reach 50 thousand people. As evident, however, this is the natural continuation of the 100 quota introduced by Conte 1 and the 102 quota chosen by the Draghi executive for this year. At the same time, with curious modifications (advantages depending on the number of children), the Women’s Option introduced in 2004 by the Berlusconi II government was extended. And the social Ape wanted by will also be revived Gentiloni in 2017.

Work vouchers – From January 1, the vouchers are back to pay agricultural and domestic workers but also catering and accommodation workers. A big leap backwards in the direction of more extreme precariousness. It was the Berlusconi IV government who introduced them for the first time in Italy, implementing one of the provisions of the Biagi law of 2003. They were intended to bring out undeclared work, but they had quickly turned into one that the former INPS president Tito Boeri had defined “the last frontier of precarious. They have been abolished in 2017, to prevent them from being canceled by popular acclaim with the referendum promoted by CGIL.

La social card – Another legacy of the Berlusconi era is what Meloni has defined as a “spending savings card” for low incomes. As far as we understand, this is an enhancement (with 500 million) of the endowment with which the social card or shopping card, also introduced in 2008, is financed: it is worth 40 euros a month, it can be used to buy food or pay health costs and bills and today is reserved for over 65 and to the parents of children under 3 years with Isee under 7,120 euros. Also already in effect conventions with shops, supermarket chains, bars and restaurants available to discount goods bought with cards by 5%. on some basic assets.
