How to request the rental bonus: requirements and methods
To claim the 2024 rent bonus, certain requirements must be met. First, you must be resident in Italy and be 18 years old.

The bonus can be requested for rental contracts for residential properties, both for the main house and for a second home. The amount of the bonus varies depending on the family situation and the income declared in the lease, with a maximum of 3,600 euros per year. To request the rental bonus, it is necessary to submit the application through the online portal of the Revenue Agency by December 31 of each year, attaching a copy of the lease agreement and your identity document. Once the correct compilation of the application has been verified and that the requirements established by law have been met, the amount of the bonus will be credited directly to the current account of the owner of the rental agreement.
How does the rental bonus calculation work
The calculation of the amount of the 2024 rental bonus depends on several factors. First, the applicant’s income is considered, which must be between a minimum of 9,000 euros and a maximum of 35,000 euros per year. In addition, the amount of the bonus varies according to the family composition: for a single-person household, the maximum amount is 1,800 euros per year, while for large families with four or more children, the maximum amount reaches 3,600 euros per year. The calculation also takes into account the geographical area where the property being rented is located: the bonus is increased for areas with greater housing tension such as Milan, Rome and Venice. To find out the amount of the bonus due, you can use the simulator made available by the Revenue Agency on its website, entering data relating to income and family situation
The rent bonus and tax breaks for property owners
The 2024 rental bonus not only provides advantages for tenants, but also tax breaks for property owners. In fact, those who rent a property for residential use and who have as recipients of the rental agreement those who request the rental bonus, can take advantage of a tax deduction of 50% of the amount of the annual rent up to a maximum of 1,000 euros. In addition, to encourage the conclusion of rental contracts agreed between landlord and tenant, there is an additional tax deduction equal to 25% of the amount of the annual rent. These tax breaks are valid both for existing leases and for those concluded after the introduction of the rental bonus. Precisely for this reason, the rental bonus also represents an opportunity for property owners who want to increase their profitability and promote the rental of their homes

Finally, control over the correct disbursement of the bonus is strengthened: the Revenue Agency will in fact verify the existence of the necessary requirements to access the measure both at the time of the request and subsequently, through cross-checks with the databases of the INPS and the Revenue Agency
How to make the most of the rental bonus to save on rental expenses.
To make the most of the 2024 rent bonus and save on rental expenses, you can follow some useful tips. First, it is important to carefully evaluate the amount of the bonus due and compare it with the rent requested by the property owner. In this way, you can negotiate a lower rent or choose another housing solution if the bonus amount does not cover a sufficient part of the expense. In addition, it is important to pay attention to the duration of the lease agreement: by opting for a longer period, such as 18 months, you can take advantage of the bonus for a longer period and thus reduce the overall cost of renting the home. Finally, it is possible to take advantage of tax breaks for property owners who rent a property for residential use to those who request the rental bonus, in order to encourage the conclusion of contracts with an agreed rent and obtain additional economic advantages
In conclusion, the 2024 rent bonus represents an important measure to support families and young workers looking for housing.
