volunteer (4 replies)

I have been offered a 5 hour volunteer position in a non-profit organization, I believe they call it an association. We are  dual citizens American/Italian. We have been living here for under 183 days in 2019 and are considered non-residents for tax purposes.  I have been told that even if you live in Italy for under 183 days in a calendar year but generate Italian source  income  you will be subject to become a tax resident.  I will not be generating any income from this position strictly voluntary. I have to register with with this company showing my Italian passport and codice fiscale and am not sure if a volunteer status could be subject to becoming a tax resident, which brings me to my question. Has anyone done volunteer work for a company and if so did you have to file something at the end of the tax year.
