All it takes is a simple signature on your Italian tax returns in the 5 x 1000 box to “support volunteer projects and non-profit associations”.
After checking the box, add Costa Crociere Foundation’s tax code: 02278760992

FAQ

IF I ALREADY DONATE VIA THE 8 PER THOUSAND SCHEME, CAN I ALSO DONATE TO THE 5 PER THOUSAND?

 

They are two separate things and not interchangeable. Donating through the 8 per thousand is a choice that all taxpayers can make regardless of 5 per thousand donations.

HOW DO I MAKE SURE MY DONATION GOES TO CCF?

Sign the box called “Support non-profit organisations dedicated to social causes..” and add the tax code for Costa Crociere Foundation: 02278760992.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I SIGN AND DON’T ADD THE TAX CODE?

If you don’t specify the tax code, the amount donated will not go specifically to Costa Crociere Foundation. It will be split proportionally between associations in the same category, in line with the number of preferences they receive.

I DON’T SUBMIT TAX RETURNS, CAN I STILL CHOOSE WHO TO DONATE MY 5 PER THOUSAND TO?

Yes, the decision to donate the five per thousand is not tied to income tax returns (Redditi or 730 forms).
Anyone who has received the CU (Certificazione Unica) can still donate 5 x 1000. To do this, you will have to go to your local Italian post office or CAF Fiscal Assistance Centre and hand in your 5×1000 form attached to the duly compiled and signed CU form, within the same deadline required for the Redditi form. This does not cost anything.
The form must be placed in a sealed envelope and marked as follows:
– “scelta per la destinazione del cinque per mille dell’IRPEF” (specified recipient of IRPEF 5 per thousand donation)
– the tax year the certification refers to.
– your Italian taxpayer’s code, name and surname.

WHEN CAN I SUBMIT MY INCOME TAX RETURNS?

– The 730 form must be submitted by 23/07/2019
– The redditi form must be submitted by 30/09/2019
