Berlusconi threatening sink govt if IMU not repealed, refunded

Bill suspending June homeowners tax due next week

Rome, May 10 - A bill suspending June payments on the unpopular IMU homeowners' tax should be put forth in the middle of next week, government sources said following a summit with the whips of the parties supporting Enrico Letta's government. The government was expected to approve the bill in a cabinet meeting Thursday, but issued a statement instead saying it would happen "in the coming days". Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, whose center-left People of Freedom (PdL) party occupies prominent seats in the fledgling left-right coalition government, campaigned hard to abolish IMU and refund all taxpayers in the run-up to February general elections. He has threatened to pull his party's support and sink the government if it does not meet his demands. Letta has agreed to "revising IMU" and suspending June payments in the meantime.
