Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

dual citizenship and taxation

Postby jdee » 02 Jan 2005, 02:34

hi all-
i am new to this site. my mother and i have gathered all of our documents, apostilles, etc. and qualify for dual citizenship. however, one important question that i have before we move forward is about taxation. currently neither of us plans to work or live in italy (she is actually retired) and we both live permanently in the US.

are there italian tax implications for income earned in the US after dual citizenship is established ? what taxes will we be required to pay in italy ?

would appreciate any perspectives as i haven't been able to find a lot of info on this.

thanks !!

I shudder when i think that you would depend upon what someone says to you about your tax inquiry as it relates to dual citizenship and even if they offer you advice any person in their right mind would consult with a tax professional afterward to confirm what is said to you so why bother to ask??

lol, peter - thanks for the response...i guess. i understand the importance of consultation with an attorney, because i am an attorney. so, that's a 'no-brainer'.

frankly, i'm seeking any specific experiences to add to my understanding of the letter of the tax law. if you have any helpful insight on that front, i'd be interested in hearing (obviously part of the purpose of this site is to share). otherwise, i'm not really interested in what makes you shudder.

I suppose I could have replaced the word "shudder" with "eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines" and conveyed the sense of positive paranoia when seeking advice from a professionless peer. The advice I furnished,save for the name of a USA based italy oriented law law firm of great repute, is the best I can offer. I am ever mindful of the fact that 99% of the lawyers give the rest a bad name so I can safely say they are in the 1% category. Happy Jurisprudence 2005 to you. Peter

I don't know where this answer came from (I hope not here and I am just asking a question that someone previously asked ) but here is a recent discussion I got into.

How do you qualify for Italian Citizenship for one born in the US.

Somehow I heard it was based on when your ancestors either left Italy or became naturalized US citizens.

My current belief from something I heard (dangerous) was that since my paternal grandmother was born in the US and was a citizen of the US thus at birth I can not claim or request citizenship through that line of my father's Italian roots.

My grandfather was born in Sicily (1894) and came to US with his family but became a citizen of US before he was married and thus before my father was born thus I can not claim or request citizenship that way either.

Using bloodlines as potential citizenship requests is thus based on when US citizenship was obtained by your ancestors and when they had children. For the legal authorities or Italians on this site please tell me if this American also has no idea what he is talking about when he discusses European law or culture. Thanks for the answer to a family debate point at this time.

Since Italian citizenship is an Italian law and subject to interpretation based upon rules,regulations, policy and procedures, it would be sensible and correct to refer you to www.italianlaw.net for a response to your inquiry. A legal response to a legal question islikely to be faulted with misinformation which is something you wish to avoid at all costs since one an application is denied there is a long waiting time for resubmitting an application with corrections.
