The 8×1000 shall not be confused with the 5×1000
The 8×1000 is the share of the IRPEF that the Government specifically earmarkes for religious faiths and for Itself for social and humanitarian purposes.
The 5×1000 is how much every contributor can allocate to support specific Onlus, social promotion associations, research institutions, universities and medical research institutions
Therefore every Citizen can select both destinations.
