Personal Taxation – Italian Style

This article from the BBC’s web site, describes how the Italian tax man is getting to grips with the country’s tax avoidance.

The Italians are finding it all a bit intrusive and with an election coming up, the tactics of the taxmen are an election issue.

According to the article, the United States uses a similar system, which links the amount of expenditure you have, with the income you need to sustain that lifestyle.

I’ve met many people over the years, who seemed to live very well, with no visible means of support.

So perhaps we need that sort of system here!
