And the petrol bonuses?

This facility is fully part of that category of proposals, be they private or state, created in order to reduce as much as possible the costs against the continuous rise in diesel prices; thinking about it, for example, even Google Maps, whose algorithm has begun to prefer routes with less environmental impact and greater fuel savings. Among these solutions, also the petrol bonus: despite the similarity of the name, fuel bonus and gasoline bonus they are two different benefits. If the first, in fact, is aimed at companies, the second was created for employees and consists of petrol vouchers sold free of charge by private companies to their employees, for a fee that does not exceed 200 euros per worker. This bonus does not contribute to the formation of income, and is consequently (fortunately) tax free. Furthermore, this benefit should not be requested by the worker, but is given by the company, if foreseen.
