Taxpayers: benefits from early childhood interventions

Andersen & Legal joined the project named “Ti spiego le tasse” organized by the Italian Association of Chartered Accountants (Treviso branch).

The project got involved 30 tax consultants and 40 children at primary school. This activity aims to enhance children respect for public goods and to raise their interest on legality.

Luca Rigotti, chartered accountant and Andersen Partner, worked as volunteer to teach children how import is paying the taxes. He explained the role of taxation in the maintenance of public structures, such as schools and hospitals, and in services offered by the Government in a simple way. “If you don’t ask the ice cream man your receipt, he won’t pay VAT, so your school won’t have enough money to repair all broken things”.
