Taxation allowances

With reference to the DECLARATION in accordance with and for the effects of art. 23 of DPR 600/1973 and subsequent modifications for Taxation Allowances (art. 13, DPR 917/1986) and in accordance with arts. 46 and 47 of D.P.R. 445/2000 we specify that:

The allowances for employee status or equivalent are deductions that can be applied to employee-like incomes (such as contribution towards living expenses) and that have to be applied proportionally to the period of the activity (in case of the contribution towards living expenses, for the academic year: from 1 October or 1 November till 30 September or 31 October). These allowances permit you to pay less taxes on the income you receive. In case of small annual incomes, such as contribution towards living expenses, allowances are very high and permit you to receive the whole amount of the contribution. You are eligible for these allowances if you receive employee-like incomes. If you receive other employee-like incomes, in addition to the contribution towards living expenses (for example collaborations – 150 hours and "tutorato" excluded), on which you request the application of allowances, you are advised not to request these allowances also on the contribution towards living expenses, as you would risk  exceeding the limit permitted.  This would result in you having to return the sum when submitting your income tax declaration.
