Taxation in Italy

Income Tax
is a progressive income tax, that ranges from 23% to 43%, which means the higher the income bracket, the higher the tax rate. The employer withholds the employee's income tax and transfers the payment to the tax authorities on a monthly basis. For simplicity, our salary calculator does not include the Regional Tax, which varies from 0.7% to 3.33%, nor the Municipal tax, which ranges from 0% to 0.9%.
Social Security Contributions
is a tax applied on the gross income, representing 9.19% of the employee's wage. The employee's contributions are deducted every month at source from the gross salary by the employer.
