That's true, but the details of how to do it are not widely published, but loads of misinformation about abmeldung is published. €9 bil is nothing to sneeze at.

The Italians don't have that option though. Compulsory.


Nonetheless it's just another example of the "tax greed" Europeans are increasingly burdened with in the interest of the "common good", which ironically only results in decline of the "common good".

I have been wanting to live in spain for years but every time I came close to buying a house, there was something nagging in the back of my head telling me not to. I love Spain, feel like its my second home and love to come over for long holidays. In the uk the government had a scheme making solar panels accessible and cheap so long as they had some of the power too - it was a good scheme entered into by many, then they stopped it because it was costing them so much. The utility bills here are really high, as is the council tax - my council tax is £1,500 a year in Hastings. So it may be swings and roundabouts because Spanish local taxes are cheap, the bins are emptied every day (we get ours done once a fortnight) and I would imagine the Spanish utility bills are much less.
