Albanian citizens are the second non-EU group for earnings in Italy in the 2018, according to the latest report by the 'Leone Moressa' foundation concerning the fiscal impact of immigrants in Italy and based on data from the Central Bank of Italy.
The Albanians, last year, recorded an average gain of around 14.000 euros per capita, for a total of about 4 billion euros.
If one compares this latter value to the gross domestic product of Albania, it can be said that the Albanians of Italy produced in the 2018 approximately 1 / 3 of the entire Albanian economy. For this reason, given the high informality in the Italian labor market - especially for foreigners - the value can be considered high. Only Brazilian citizens, in fact, outperform Albanians with around 15.000 per capita.
In total there are about 460.000 Albanians living in the Bel Paese. A figure that though Albania News has always reiterated to be higher as the population resident in Italy from Albania at 1 January 2017 according to ISTAT data is from 448.407 without counting the citizens who have acquired Italian citizenship and who are no longer counted in official statistics.
How the profit is calculated
The calculated earnings derive from the taxes paid by the Albanian tax payers in Italy (about 286.000). The reference tax is that on personal income tax (IRPEF) through which, on average, an Albanian emigrant in Italy pays about 2271 euro to the state.
This means that the Albanians of Italy pour into the coffers of the Italian state about 651 million euros of personal income tax alone, a value that has recorded a growth of 6,8% compared to a year ago.
The total coming from the pockets of immigrants in Italy, on the other hand, amounts to around 8 billion (4,3% of the total), a figure slowly growing compared to the previous year (+ 3,6%).
