The rule also applies to all stamps that relate to previous years. A notice to give additional time to the collection agency to recover the sum and send a ascertainment. In this context, however, an aspect that is not just secondary must be emphasized. The regions are not particularly fast in recovering these sums. And therefore it is quite predictable that with the end of the year avalanches of checks will be started on all those car stamps that have not been paid. In fact, the bodies that deal with the collection will not send notices or assessments in January: it would be too late.
The three-year rule
So the path chosen to recover resources in a relatively short time is one that involves pressing controls throughout the final part of each year. For this reason millions of Italians these days could receive a tax notice for a car tax that relates to the past.

In the event of an assessment or notice, it will be time to open the wallet to pay off what we had forgotten to pay, maybe a few years ago.
