The car tax for historic cars could return, a new blow for the sector

With the purpose of limit pollution generated by historic cars and therefore with homologation cycles far from those of today, a maneuver signed by PD, M5S and Italia Viva risks undermine an entire sector requesting the payment of the road tax on more “older” cars. A proposal that could be quite perplexing, especially if we consider the amount of historic cars currently circulating and kilometers traveled by them. In short, paying a property tax for 30 years combined with VAT, IPT, excise duties on every single supply and so on, may no longer be enough for the State. The idea, should this bill pass, is that the stamp could soon become a “tax forever”, A sort of constant that any motorist would have to pay with a“ polluting ”car.

The amendment to the tax delegation (found by colleagues of Engine1, always attentive to this kind of issues), bears the signature of Silvia Vono (Italia Viva), Giuseppe L’Abbate and Gabriella Di Girolamo (5 Star Movement), Gianni Pittella and Daniele Manca (Democratic Party). In fact, the text shows the intention of remove any exemption from car tax for historic cars, be they Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Alfa Romeo, Lancia or a simpler Fiat 126 jealously guarded for emotional reasons.

While someone, more affluent, could manage to cover the disbursement without particular problems, numerous enthusiasts could find themselves in the condition of not being able to pay an additional stamp duty and therefore renounce the possession of a historic car. Vehicle that would in any case be subjected to a regular cycle of coupons and therefore indirectly generate revenue (VAT, IRES, IRAP) for the State.

The hope is that the amendment does not go to approval and does not lead to a counterproductive situation like that of the Superbollo, recently confirmed and defined as harmful by the MEF itself. Certainly in the coming days ACI Storico and ASI, organizations that could also reduce their activity in the area if a market contraction is recorded, will release their statements and we are confident that a counter-proposal will be suggested.
