Italian Inheritance and Gift Tax

This tax has a wide territorial reach, encompassing assets held by the deceased person (de cuius) regardless of their location if the de cuius was an Italian resident. This can result in instances of double taxation, which may be addressed by utilizing relevant Double Taxation Conventions where they are in place and applicable.
