RAI fee away from bills

Via the Rai Fee from the electricity bill


Among the various taxes that Italian citizens are required to pay regularly, undoubtedly one of the most unpleasant has always been the RAI license.

In fact, the Rai license fee is none other than thetelevision subscription. Anyone who owns a television set is required to pay for it once a year and only once per family (provided that all family members reside in the same house).

Since 2016 (Law no.208 of 2015, art.1, paragraphs 152 to 159), the presumption of possession of a television set has been introduced if there is a user for the supply of electric energy in the place where a person has their residence.


From 2017, therefore, the Rai license fee is automatically charged in the electricity bill.

The holders of electricity users for residential domestic use then make the payment of this fee by billing the electricity user invoice.

In common sense, the electricity bill was not the exact place to place the Rai Canon. However, this ploy had come about to make everyone pay this tax. In fact, in addition to being an unpleasant taxation for most, the Rai license fee has always been one of the most evaded taxes. By slipping it directly into billthe Rai Fee was thus paid automatically, by practically everyone (or almost).

The payment of the Rai license fee in the bill had been introduced by the Renzi government in order to try to fight thetax evasion.

But things are about to change.

From 2023and therefore starting from next year, the Rai license fee it will no longer be in your bill. To establish this, an agenda presented by Maria Laura Paxia (Mixed) to the Energy decree, approved in the Chamber yesterday.

The proposal was brought to the Chamber by Vannia Gava, Undersecretary for Ecological Transition, as a recommendation, and was then accepted with reformulation, that is without the need to be put to the vote.

Paxia stressed that by doing so, Italy’s commitment to the European Union to unbundle the Rai license is followed up as it was considered an improper charge.

At this point, the highest risk that will be encountered is that the separation from the bill translates into a new race toevasion.
