TAXE D’HABI­TA­TION CHANGES

Living France - - The Essentials -

Taxe d’habi­ta­tion bills have ar­rived in homes across France and the rates have changed. The tax will be scrapped for 80% of French homes by 2020 and is be­ing grad­u­ally re­duced un­til then – but 6,000 com­munes had also voted to raise their lo­cal tax rate in 2018. The French Min­istry of Ac­tion and Pub­lic Ac­counts has cre­ated an in­ter­ac­tive map to help French residents see how the changes to taxe d’habi­ta­tion are af­fect­ing their town, depart­ment and re­gion. The map pro­vides in­for­ma­tion on the av­er­age amount of hous­ing tax per house­hold in 2018, as well as the num­ber of house­holds ben­e­fit­ing from the re­duc­tion and abo­li­tion of the tax in each area. The map can be found at economie.gouv.fr/par­ti­c­uliers. There is also an on­line form residents can fill in to find out whether their in­di­vid­ual house­hold is el­i­gi­bile for the re­form – residents would need to pro­vide their tax ref­er­ence, num­ber of tax shares in the house­hold and op­tion­ally the amount of their 2017 hous­ing tax.
