Taxes

The tax regulation in France has recently changed. As of January 2019, your income taxe should be paid directly by your employer.

Good to know:

  • You may be income tax exempt thanks to some tax agreements between France and other countries. You can find a list of these tax agreements here: https://www.impots.gouv.fr/portail/les-conventions-internationales
  • If you make contributions to certain charities, such as Medecins sans Frontieres, you can deduct 75% of your contribution from your annual tax declaration, which is nice as it effectively trebles your donation (the charity will email you a special certificate for this purpose, which you enclose with your tax return)
  • Don’t forget to deduct your childcare / creche payments, if relevant.

For any question you can:

  1. Contact your local tax office (https://lannuaire.service-public.fr/recherche?whoWhat=Service+des+imp%C3%B4ts+des+particuliers+SIP&where=Paris+75) or the service des impôts des particuliers non-résidents
  2. Call Impôts Service from Monday till Friday from 8AM till 10PM and on Saturdays from 9AM till 7PM: +33 (0)8 10 46 76 87
  3. Meet a certified public accountant from May 22nd to May 25th at Ordre des experts-comptables de Paris (free of charge service, no appointment required): http://www.oec-paris.fr/qui-sommes-nous/contact-et-acces/contact-et-acces---2281
  4. Meet a lawyer on Thursday, May 3rd in your local city hall (free of charge service, no appointment required): https://www.paris.fr/actualites/stresse-par-votre-declaration-de-revenus-un-avocat-vous-aide-4725

Old tax regulation

You need to declare the income you received in 2017 before May 17th 2018. Declaring your income does not mean you will necessarily have to pay the income tax.

You can download the declaration form on impots.gouv.fr or get it in your local tax office (service des impôts des particuliers, also called SIP).

After you filled in the form you will have to send it back to your local tax office or to the service des impôts des particuliers non-résidents if you left France.
