RT: Catholic church to lose historic property tax exemption in Italy

Italy’s Catholic Church will be forced to pay taxes starting in 2013
after the EU pressured the country’s government to pass a controversial
law stripping the Church of its historic property tax exemption.

The Catholic Church in Italy is excluded from paying taxes on its
land if at least a part of a Church property is used non-commercially –
for instance, a chapel in a bed-and-breakfast.

“The regulatory framework will be definite by January 1, 2013 –
the start of the fiscal year – and will fully respect the [European]
Community law,”
Italian premier Mario Monti’s government said in a statement on Tuesday.

The move could net Italy revenues of 500 million to 2 billion euros
annually across the country, municipal government associations said. The
extra income from previously exempt properties in Rome alone –
including hotels, restaurants and sports centers – could reach 25.5
million euros a year, La Repubblica daily newspaper reported.

On Monday, the Council of State, Italy’s highest ranking court for
administrative litigation, ruled against the new law. Authorities
stepped in, arguing that everyone in Italy should pay property tax,
including the Church.

The measure came after the country’s leadership decided in February
to alter Italy’s property tax code, ending the Church’s longstanding
privileges due to the severe debt crisis.

Last December, after new austerity measures were adopted in the
country, 130,000 Italians signed an online petition urging the
government to strip the Church of its tax exemption.

“It was time that they paid, too, with all the exemptions they’ve had throughout the years,” Marco
Catalano, a 35-year-old shopkeeper in Rome, told the New York Times in
February, adding that he goes to church twice a month. “They own the
most beautiful buildings in downtown Rome, on Italian soil, and rent
them out at market prices. They don’t give them for free or at low
prices for charity.”


Two years ago, the EU began to investigate whether the tax privileges
of some Church properties in Italy could be considered illegal state
aid.
