Eye to the receipt: hides one “Covid tax” which varies from 2 to 4 euros. To report it is the Codacons, which has been receiving consumer reports for days about “particular” price increases and expense items applied by merchants. “Numerous consumers have denounced a surcharge, on average from 2 to 4 euros, applied in particular by hairdressers is beauty centers to its customers – says the president Carlo Rienzi -. A tax included in the receipt with the entry ‘Covid’, and which would be imposed as mandatory contribution to pay merchants’ expenses for disinfection and securing the premises “.
“We have also recorded cases of beauty centers that force customers to buy a disposable kit consisting of kimonos and slippers, at the modest sum of 10 euros – adds Rienzi -. Anyone who does not pay this ‘tax’ and does not buy the kit, cannot undergo the treatments, again for the needs related to Covid. “” A real illegal Far West that could configure the crime of fraud, and against which the Codacons – concludes the note – lodges a complaint with the Guardia di Finanza and the Antitrust Authority, providing all the reports received in this regard, so that the necessary investigations into the territory can be launched “.
