Storyline

Il maresciallo Topponi si presenta una mattina nel grande negozio di tessuti del cavalier Pezzella, per un accertamento fiscale. Su consiglio del consulente fiscale, il negoziante tenta di corrompere il maresciallo, mandando dei vistosi regali....ad un indirizzo sbagliato. Avendo saputo che il maresciallo è un appassionato cacciatore, lo raggiunge una domenica mattina in pieno assetto di caccia, ma gli combina tanti guai da farselo nemico. Al ritorno dalla caccia i due uomini hanno un incidente che li costringe a farsi ricoverare all'ospedale: qui, insieme per forza, scoprono che la figlia dell'uno ed il figlio dell'altro si amano, ma il maresciallo non vuol sentir parlare di questo idillio. Ripresa l'ispezione, il maresciallo raccoglie materiale sufficiente, ma il commerciante riesce ad impadronirsi della sua borsa, contenente il verbale dell'inchiesta ed i documenti. Nel rimorso di poter compromettere la carriera dell'ufficiale, il negoziante, seguendo il consiglio del parroco, ... Written by rosebud6

satire of the "tax-fear"
24 January 2004 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

One day the most terrible nightmare of Mr.Pezzella (Toto'), owner of a chic boutique, comes true: the incorruptible tax inspector Topponi (Aldo Fabrizi), pays him a visit...and their troubles begin. Following the advice of his tax consultant (Luis de Funes), Pezzella tries unsuccessfully to become a friend of Topponi and avoid the prohibitive penalty he should pay.

I tartassati ("Over-taxed" ) is an excellent, extremely funny satire of the all-Italian desire to avoid paying taxes. Not an artsy movie but certainly an underrated one.
