The Complete List of Italian ADRs Subject to Financial Transactional Tax

Italy is one of the few countries that imposes a transaction tax for all financial transactions (FTT). This includes Italian ADRs trading on the US markets. The current FTT rate is 0.20% with a lower rate for certain transactions. This 20% rate will impact the overall return an investor earns on Italian ADRs. This tax is on top of the dividend withholding tax rate which is 26% for US investors. So investors need to consider these factors before buying Italian ADRs.
