On the Italy Expat Forum
Found this in a town I'm interested in:
Price of the property:
Price per m2: 5.40 eur/m²
40 euros in community costs
Are apartments in the country really this cheap? What are "community costs" and what other cost come into play? Are utilities a huge expense?

Can anyone recommend an English speaking, Italian Commercialista that has expertise with U.S. retiree’s and totalitarian agreements between the US and Italy with regards to SS and IRA distributions sourced from the U.S.? This is for the filing of annual Italian returns only (not U.S.).
