Income taxation 2018.

Post by goslow »

To date we have not received our notification of Income tax and social cost payable in respect of the year ended 31.12.2017 which we submitted in May 2018.
We are getting worried and to that end we talked with some french friends, they mentioned something about a white year and that nothing was payable for 2018. it seems strange that we had to submit a return for the year ended 31.12.2017 and make payments in February and May to then say nothing more has to be paid.

We will be going to the impot office if we do not get a bill by the end of the week as another friend says the authorities will impose a 10% fine for non payment.

Any help and advice will be appreciated.

If you owe anything it will generally be due by 15 September. The avis are just being issued now in many cases. Are you sure you haven't opted for a digital bill and it's sitting in your online tax account ?

It will be viewable there anyway, I have not recieved my avis but could see what I have to pay on line.

2017 impôts are une année blanche but you will still have pretty much the same payments to make in 2018, the difference being they will be pre-payments against the 2018 imposition, something to celebrate nonetheless.

Sadly once again I had no impôts to pay for 2017, I ampresuming that its also une année blanche for social charges, is that correct?

If not its going to be très compliqué :lol:

goslow..

We got our avis several weeks back but that might be because we are one of the departments has the earliest tax return date.

It certainly wasn’t a “white year” for us either in terms of income tax or social charges so I’d second the advice to either check online or talk to your tax office.

Panic not .. we only rec'd our paper avis a a couple of days ago. When will looked at our online accounts last week there was still nothing to see except for a note saying that there would be a delay due to the nature of our declaration.
And that is only because we have income, ie pensions, from abroad which are not paid directly to our French bank account. Plus we pay social charges on other income .. so anything slightly unusual and there is a delay.

The advice to check your online account is good .. if only that it reassures you that smthg is happening.

Surely it’s 2018 that’s considered the année blanche as 2019 is when PAYE is being introduced and it would be difficult to collect retrospective tax for 2018 and PAYE for 2019 together. I believe a system is in place for those whose income comes from outside a France and cannot be linked into PAYE. Social charges will presumably be charged on the 2019 income.

That sounds more likely. Too busy to check and knowing won't change anything!

Don't know if this helps or makes it all sound more complicated - apologies if it's the latter.

We received an email around 2 weeks ago to say our Avis d'impot was available online. We have not received the paper version yet which we did elect to receive - I think we had to tick a box somewhere in their system.

Last year 2017 for 2016 income we paid no tax (which is usual) but no CSG either (which we usually pay every year on pensions (early retired no S1)) neither did we have to pay anything to URSSAF for health (which we usually pay 8% every year). This year for 2017 income we have no tax to pay as usual but have got to pay the usual CSG on our pensions so I guess we will get the health bill in November as well.

Yes it is: at least some of those in that situation have been told to expect income tax to be deducted monthly from their French bank account, amount based on previous year(s) returns.
