Tax authorities lift fine on 12-year-old boy

(ANSA) – Fasano, October 5 – Italian tax collection agency Equitalia on Friday cancelled a hefty fine sent to a 12-year-old boy living in Fasano in the southern Puglia region in connection with unpaid car tax dating to three years before he was born. The fine – amounting to 1,138.77 euros - was lifted "on receipt of a letter from the boy's father and subsequent checks that led to the discovery of the mistake", Equitalia said in a statement. The error occurred after the tax authorities incorrectly matched the boy's tax code to another person of the same name, the real owner of the car.
