Italian Lower House Considers Reduced Rate on Childcare Items

May 25, 2017 Becca Haile

Specified items include diapers, high chairs and strollers. This measure seeks to reduce the tax burden faced by young families: the bill’s preamble links Italy’s low birth rate with the nation’s low rate of employment for young people.
