From January 2026 the planned revaluation of the properties risks materializing in a sting for the owners
VENICE. From 1 January 2026, in the province of Venice, the IMU on second homes could grow by 155% and the value of the ISEE could increase by 250%. This is the effect of the land registry reform, wanted by the Draghi government, at the push of the European Union.
If no one has spoken for years, but no one has had the courage to put it on the agenda, being the trigger for a series of avalanche consequences, among the most unpopular. In summary, the increase in taxes.
The reform aims to redefine the mapping of buildings, measuring the surfaces in square meters and not in cadastral rooms, in the name of simplification. Then hunting down the ghost properties, which have not been given to you for at least nine years: a research that will be carried out also thanks to IT tools and drones, and which should lead to the coffers of the state a few years of millions of euros.
But the measure opposed by all is another: the revaluation of the value of the properties. Or, better, the adjustment of their value to the current market prices, which have grown considerably over the years. The current cadastral system is based on values for the most part still at the end of the 1980s, when the ICI was introduced.
In the meantime, cities have changed, entire neighborhoods have been transformed, the relationship between center and suburbs has been revolutionized, prices in some areas have skyrocketed.
But nothing has changed for the land registry, the Italian families to pay taxes in a frame that is a photograph more than thirty years old. This may no longer be the case from 2026, if the reformed by Draghi manages to achieve the goal as president. And for the Venetian families the blow to be of those who do not forget.
«In Venice, the IMU on second homes will grow by 155%, while the increase in the ISEE will exceed 250%. Our fear is that this opens up to an uncontrolled increase in taxes, for everyone, even for the less well-off sections of the population »the alarm launched by Mario Ragno, from Uil. It was the union itself, with a study, that determined the extent of the growth, estimating the new cadastral values for all the Italian provincial capitals. These are not just numbers.
The revision of the estimates will have the immediate consequence of an increase in the tax base of taxes. In summary, if the reform goes through, we will all have to pay more money for property taxes.
The Tari (the tax on waste), the Imu on second homes, the personal income tax on second homes that are not located and located in the municipality of residence of the owner, registration taxes for those who sell and are not builders, taxes will increase. of inheritance and donation. And, above all, the value of the ISEE (the indicator that measures the economic condition of families) will grow, with a further series of avalanche consequences. “This will cut out an important slice of citizens who had concessions and discounts on bills, on fees for kindergartens, canteens, Rsa, universities” he explains still Spider.
The introduction of the new parameters could be spread over the three-year period, seeing its final completion in 2029. But the tug-of-war with trade unions, builders and, above all, families is still ongoing.
