Air taxi, Guardia di Finanza discovers one million euros not paid
265 companies did not pay dues in Cagliari
Today, Thursday May 13, 2021, the Guardia di Finanza of Cagliari has completed an important operation that has uncovered almost one million euros of unpaid taxes for what concerns the transport of passengers on board air taxis. The Fiamme Gialle islanders have focused their attention on the vehicles in service at the Sardinian airport of Cagliari-Elmas, bringing to the surface an alarming situation from a tax point of view. As the Cagliari financiers explained, the sector we are talking about must comply with very specific legislation dating back to 2011. The text just mentioned provides for the payment of a tax that is commensurate with the distance of the journey in kilometers, taking into account any passenger being carried. Going more into the legislative detail, the air taxi companies are obliged to pay 100 Euro per passenger in the case of journeys of less than 1500 kilometers, while this rate doubles in the case of longer distances. The airport flights and related documents have been carefully examined, specifically the period between 2017 and 2019, with particular reference to the summer season and holidays. The non-payment involved 265 private shipping companies, whose registered office is located in 50 foreign countries. The Guardia di Finanza has ascertained over 960 thousand euros of unpaid taxes, which is why the companies have been fined with almost 300 thousand euros.
