64% of surveyed voters prefer IMU tax cut over elimination
But abolishing the property tax favoured by 72% on centre right30 August, 13:28
The poll found that 64% of those surveyed would prefer to see parts of the property tax kept in place to make public funds available for other purposes.
Just 36% support total elimination of the IMU.
But among supporters of the centre-right, which has pushed hard for total repeal of the housing tax, 72% were found to be in favour of abolishing the IMU, and just 28% for a partial rollback.
By contrast, 86% of centre-left supporters are for partial rollback, as are 72% of voters supporting the anti-establishment Five-Star Movement (M5S) led by ex-comedian Beppe Grillo.
Among the M5S, 28% were found to favour wiping out the tax, compared to 14% among centre-left supporters.
