The government rewrites the rule that introduces the tax on the extra profits of the banks and puts in place the Antitrust that will ensure that the institutions do not unload on customers the weight of the tax they will have to pay from this year. A majority agreement, merged into an amendment of the government to the dl Asset, which fully satisfies Deputy Prime Minister Antonio Tajani and his party, so much so that Forza Italia will withdraw all the amendments presented. The tax changes but should not change its revenue, estimated by the government at just under 3 billion. Too little, however, to help a maneuver that is around 20-25 billion, and that does not want to touch the deficit too much in the year in which the Stability Pact will return. Old or new, the European budget constraint is already putting pressure on the government ahead of Thursday's Nadef, prompting it to look elsewhere for the oxygen needed for key measures, such as cutting the tax wedge that alone needs at least ten billion. And to achieve the goal, every road is legitimate: even that of a new building amnesty that Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini puts on the plate, unleashing the wrath of the opposition.
With a mini-amnesty, explains the deputy prime minister and minister in Piacenza to the audience of Confedilizia, "the State collects and citizens can return to the full availability of their good", then invites us to "go forward with courage to the end".

The need to bring out the income hidden from the tax authorities is already felt by the whole government that on Monday is preparing to launch, in the new decree with the measures on energy, an amnesty aimed at traders and self-employed. Those who have committed violations on receipts and invoices can be brought back into compliance within two and a half months by paying only a mini penalty. And even for those who have paid less VAT than they should, the penalties are halved.
The funds that may come from the amnesties are still little stuff in the face of the needs of the budget law. For this reason, the tax on extra profits was an urgency, as well as its modification, which although it changes the tax base and the ceiling of the levy, meets the banks without putting revenues at risk for the government. The amendment recalibrates the levy over the two-year period 2021-23 and sets the tax ceiling at 0.26% (instead of 0.1%). But the tax base changes: no longer the total assets but the total amount of risk exposure, a clarification that therefore excludes government bonds.
In addition, banks will be able to choose whether to pay the tax or strengthen their capital: they are given the possibility to pay two and a half times the tax into a reserve that cannot distribute profits but which is counted "among the elements of Common Equity Tier 1 capital", i.e. it strengthens the banks' capital.

Aware that there will be no resources to do everything, Salvini explains, the priority remains "to increase the salaries and pensions of those with the lowest incomes". Tajani is on the same wavelength and reiterates that "the maneuver will be dedicated to cutting the tax wedge", but also to "detax the thirteenth, production premiums and overtime" and only begin to "take a look at pensions" with the aim of bringing them to one thousand euros a month "by the end of the legislature".
However, resources remain few, mainly because of the Superbonus that has eliminated the margins of the deficit. For Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni "the numbers speak: 140 billion euros of hole taken away from health, education, pensions, to renovate second homes and even castles", she told Tg1.
