The road tax, better known as Car tax, is administered by the regions and the autonomous provinces of Bolzano and Trento. Exceptions are the regions of Friuli Venezia Giulia and Sardinia, for which the tax is subject to the Agency of Revenue. The owners of vehicles registered in the public vehicle register (Pra) are obliged to pay vehicle tax. Usually the deadline is set on the last day of the month following the registration of the car, even if recently, thanks to the pandemic of Covid-19, in many regions the deadline has passed. This has created some confusion and also fueled a number of used car buying and selling scams. So how can you not be fooled and not forget the road tax expiry?
