However you must obtain residenza (residency) within 18 months from the purchase, otherwise you will have to pay an additional 7% of the cadastral value, plus interest and a fine. The cadastral value is usually less than the purchase price of the property.

To purchase agricultural land in addition to that for sale with a house, you will pay 12% of the cadastral value. For building plots the tax is 15% of the cadastral value.
