It is known that the tax will only apply to incomes exceeding 2,000 euros.
Taxpayers will also be able to declare the value of their assets as of January 1, 2023. They will pay tax at the rate of 14% on these declarations. This is similar to the new tax laws that were introduced in India earlier this year. The Indian government has allowed citizens to declare their property ahead of schedule before higher tax rates are introduced.
Up to this point, cryptocurrencies in Italy were subject to foreign exchange taxation laws, which are much lower.
Italy’s stance on cryptocurrencies comes after Portugal, one of the most crypto-friendly countries in Europe, unveiled its plan for taxing short-term income from digital assets at a rate of 28% in October.
