Goodbye paintings and codes, 730 always easier


Goodbye paintings and codes, 730 always easier

It's always easier to talk to the taxman. The much feared tax return, for years the prerogative only of professionals, is in fact becoming increasingly simpler: after years of work, the concept of “declaration” is in fact being overcome and, thanks to the simplified pre-compiled form, the taxpayer no longer even has to deal with do with “frameworks” or “tax codes”: just accept or modify what the tax authorities already know. Is this your income? These are your healthcare expenses? Just say yes or no and the system will do the rest by modifying the model. For the bravest, however, there remains the option of accessing the actual model.

So this season of self-declarations which starts, as usual, at the beginning of May when the system accepts the changes (they can be transmitted until 30 September), promises to be decidedly simpler. It is no coincidence that around 4 million taxpayers chose do-it-yourself last year.
No more fields and codes but a guided path to help even less experienced taxpayers send their tax return. From 2024, a new, simpler and more intuitive interface will be available on an experimental basis for employees and pensioners who access the pre-compiled 730 (2023 income) as an alternative to the traditional one.

It will not be necessary to know how to find your way around the fields, lines and boxes of the 730 or to know the codes to enter for individual income or deductible expenses: from this year it will be sufficient to confirm the data that will be proposed, in clear language, directly from the Revenue Agency and follow some simple video instructions step by step.
At the end of the guided path, the system itself will automatically generate the declaration, which will then be ready for sending.

At each step, the user will be made aware, through a warning, of the fact that he is confirming or modifying the proposed data. The system will also offer information and support regarding any data that could not be entered directly into the declaration.
Thus the data received by the Agency for the pre-compiled declaration increases year after year. In 2015, the data used to pre-populate the models was approximately 157 million while, in 2023, the information preloaded by the Agency exceeded 1.3 billion. The largest part is represented by data relating to healthcare costs, which in the last year amounted to more than 1 billion.

The changes are foreseen by the legislative decree implementing the tax delegation which provides for changes to the declaration calendar, even simpler pre-compiled and extended to VAT holders, more streamlined declaration forms, but also payment of F24 via PagoPA, more time for payments installments, pause in sending the Revenue Agency in the months of August and December for communications relating to automated checks, formal checks and settlements of taxes on income subject to separate taxation and letters for compliance.
