Thirteenth and Taxes: How Much Money Will You End Up With in Taxes?
This year, the thirteenth of all Italians (beneficiaries 33.9 million, including pensioners and employees) will reach 46.9 billion euros. Of these, 11.4 billion will be reabsorbed by the tax authorities.

The thirteenth represents the purchasing power of Italians during the Christmas period, for example to buy food for the holidays and to give gifts according to the Christmas tradition. In recent years, especially last year, there has been a 50% decrease in Christmas purchases compared to the pre-crisis period of 2008-2009.

Thus, the expenditures of the Italians were concentrated in the month preceding December, which led to the collapse of expenditures in the period under study.
