Bonus bills: what to do

The bill bonus is the incentive to help Italian families and consumers cope with the rising costs of electricity and gas. Already adopted for the second quarter of 2022, the bill bonus has undergone some changes following the approval of the aid decree. it was renewed by the Draghi government also for the third quarter of this year and will be implemented by Arera, the regulatory authority for energy, networks and the environment.

In addition, the retroactivity of the bonus to the first quarter of 2022 is also envisaged for those who did not have time to submit the ISEE. Basically, if the ISEE is presented after the payment of the bills, the discount will arrive in the next bill. In the event that automatic clearing is not possible, a refund will be made. It is also important to remember that the bill bonus does not provide for a fixed amount: the value of the social bonus, in fact, is determined and periodically updated by the Arera on the basis of the criteria established by the legislation.

The requirements to benefit from the bill bonus are therefore:

  • belonging to a family unit with an Isee indicator not exceeding 12 thousand euros per year
  • belonging to a family unit with at least 4 dependent children (large family) and Isee indicator not exceeding 20,000 euros,
  • membership of a family unit with a citizenship income or citizenship pension.

Furthermore, one of the members of the Isee family must be the holder of an electricity and / or natural gas and / or water supply contract:

  • with a tariff for domestic use (i.e. the supply must serve premises used for family homes) or, to access the social water bonus, for resident domestic use
  • active (i.e. the provision of the service must be in progress) or temporarily suspended due to arrears.

Alternatively, one of the members of the Isee family unit must make use of a (centralized) condominium supply of natural gas and / or water for civil and active use in rooms used as family dwellings.

Finally, each family unit has the right to only one bonus per type – electricity, gas, water – per year of competence of the DSU – or the Single Substitute Declaration, the document necessary for the calculation of the ISEE which contains personal data, income and assets of a family unit and which is valid from the moment of presentation and until the following December 31st.

The 200 euro bonus

The Draghi government has approved a bonus of 200 euros for workers and retirees. This is one of the measures introduced (and reminiscent of the Renzi Bonus) to deal with the growing price increase also due to the war in Ukraine, contained in the “Aid Decree” aimed at families and businesses. The decree has a total cost of 14 billion which will be partly financed thanks to the increase in the tax on the extra-profits of energy companies from 10 to 25 percent. The € 200 bonus is not for all workers and also involves retirees: around 30 million people will receive it.

Bonus awnings

After being introduced for the first time in 2020, with the 2022 Budget Law the awning bonus returns: the incentive allows until 31 December 2022 to deduct 50% of the costs incurred for interventions up to 60 thousand euros for purchase and installation of sunscreens or mobile blackout technical closures. Those who bear the costs of energy requalification and the owners of individual residential real estate units or common parts of condominiums can request it.

To obtain the bonus, you can choose the Irpef deduction spread over 10 years or the direct discount on the invoice with the transfer of the tax credit for the bonus. The interventions to eliminate pre-existing systems and the manpower of the professional in charge of following the Enea practice are also deductible. A 110% deduction can also be obtained if the works carried out fall within those of the 110% Superbonus for energy redevelopment. In this case the works are linked to “driving” interventions such as thermal insulation works; replacement of air conditioning systems; works for the reduction of seismic risk
