Getting an exoneration from tax foncieres

Post by mysty »

How does that work.
We get a number of tax fonciers at this time of year for anything we own private or company owned.
This year we got two exonerations for company owned properties.
Amount to pay 0
Never had that before.

I asked about this when I bought a property and the seller ripped the kitchen out - including the sink - on the completion day (was supposed to be leaving all of it) and since a kitchen sink is a legal minimum for it to be habitable, I thought I might be able to claim an exoneration. Some departments may agree but this one didn't. I was told that for it to be classed as uninhabitable it had to have no water or electricity available. If there is a connection there which can be activated then you have to pay tax foncieres in full, even if you have no sanitary fittings in the case of the water connection.

They also told me that if I had a low income I could be exonerated - my annual income would have to have been less than half of the tax foncieres bill.

Both properties have water and electricity, one is on mains drainage.
One in the Limousin the other in the Cantal.
It cannot be income based this time as the tax was only 195 euros and I took more than that this year in salary.

They were company owned properties so age would not have been an issue :D
