Let us fight against the lie of the craftsman who is a tax evader by nature
Then the Prime Minister talks about taxes: equating craftsmen and small business owners with “born tax evaders” is “a lie that has justified a persecutory attitude for too many years.” And again: “We are fighting tax evasion, real tax evasion, not alleged tax evasion.” “In the last few days we have passed a law in the Council of Ministers as a sign of the state that wants to trust its citizens. The decree intervenes in the regulation of assessment, reduces sanctions and introduces the preventive agreement that takes place every two years. A very important tool that illustrates an approach different from the past. Don’t bother those who want to do it. An approach that breaks the unbearable equation according to which a craftsman, a VAT number, must be inherently a tax evader. A lie we have always fought”.

This was said by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni via video link to the National Assembly of the Cna.
