Italy government reaches deal to reform housing tax
ROME Aug 28 (Reuters) - Italy's government reached a deal on Wednesday to reform an unpopular housing tax, easing a source of persistent coalition tensions.
The cabinet agreed to abolish the housing tax known as IMU from the start of 2014, Prime Minister Enrico Letta told reporters, replacing it with a new levy known as the "service tax."
The two installments of IMU which were due in September and December 2013 will be scrapped, Letta said after the cabinet meeting.
