Possible new taxes if you have a holiday home in a tourist region

Un nouvel impôt sur les résidences secondaires ?



La surtaxe d’habitation augmente dans de nombreuses villes touristiques, mais est destinée à disparaître en même temps que la taxe d’habitation en 2020. Quel nouvel impôt les propriétaires pourraient-ils avoir à payer pour compenser cette perte de revenus pour les communes ?

La disparition totale de la taxe d’habitation en 2020 inquiète les communes, qui cherchent comment compenser cette perte de revenus, notamment ceux liés aux résidences secondaires. L’année dernière, la surtaxe d’habitation sur ces dernières aurait rapporté plus de 63 millions d’euros à Paris.

Cet impôt est actuellement plafonné à 60 %. Avant qu’il ne disparaisse lui aussi d’ici 2 ans, de nombreuses communes touristiques ont décidé de profiter de la marge qu’il leur laisse : il a triplé pour atteindre son maximum à Nice, Bordeaux pourrait le voir passer de 20 % à 50 %, Toulouse étudierait la question… Saint-Nazaire envisagerait elle aussi de le porter à 60 %, ce qui a entraîné la création d’une association de propriétaires contre cette mesure, dans une commune qui ne serait pas suffisamment touristique pour qu’une telle surtaxe se justifie.

Le rapporteur général du budget à l’Assemblée, Joël Giraud, a admis que chaque commune présentait ses particularités et s’est prononcé en faveur d’une sérieuse étude de la situation. Parmi les solutions envisagées, la création d’un nouvel impôt qui fusionnerait la surtaxe d’habitation avec la taxe sur les logements vacants, qui s’applique aux logements non meublés et non occupés pendant plus de six mois.

Kinda old news as this is the way that they plan on stopping normal residences from paying tax d'hab.

The village-city has to be over 50000 people from what I have read.. Could mean less 2nd homeowners in Nice so more housing for the locals.. All for it..

It’s closer to God’s own river though.

Tiss indeed. And they build a lot of ships there. Mostly cruise ships. I guess the workers need somewhere to live ;)

Been expecting that news for a long time, the revenue loss from the abolition of taxe d'hab for the majority was always going to be paid for by increasing the taxe on those higher earners and second home owners.

Those who have a residence secondaire were never going to be exempt from the taxe d'hab no matter how low their income, double whammy was that it would increase massively to cover the loss of revenue from all those exonéré, triple whammy if it is in a tourist area.

If your area has implemented a taxe de séjour then by definition it is a tourist area, they will be quick to follow suit.

Those who live in their residence principal but who have gîtes which are rated seperately for taxe d'hab + foncières will only be exempt on their own living quarters and the gîtes will in time have the surcharge added.

Must admit I don't know much about this (other than rumours that tax hab may increase for 2nd home owners to recoup losses on tax reductions for main residences).
How firm are the proposals and when would new taxes come in? What level of hikes are proposed for rural non tourist areas?

I do not think this new tax when it happens will affect you in rural areas.

Try to find out if a taxe de séjour has been voted in for your area, if not then no worries. If yes then they always look to further tighten the screw.

We’re in a tourist area, with the Pont du Gard just a few minutes down the road and the town itself is lovely and much-visited, but if it’s just places with a population of over 50,000 we won’t find a big rise, having a population of around 10,000. Fingers crossed!
