I have just got my tax demand and there is an additional tax on the bottom of the form in 'base etat', I have no idea what it is . As far as I can gather it's a regional tax for under developed property? Any ideas folks.
Your local mairie will surely be able to tell you why your taxes foncieres zoomed up. I think it's likely related to some special projects undertaken by your commune. Some cities (I think Nîmes takes the prize) decided a while ago to splurge on municipal grandeur and now enjoy the highest taxes in France.
Ithought mine was very high last year 'ime in the middle of nowhere 20 minutes drive to nearest town 'but for some reason it has come down by 100 euros this time [was i overcharged last time for some reason ]
Hi,I went to the Impot, &asked why the rise in the Fonciere,& they said that I had lost the - 100 euros(Old gits)allowance,because my pension increase was above 15.000 euros per year,so the old saying,what God gives He also taketh away!Hope this helps.Jimbo
hello, due to the condition of my house when I bought it I was granted an exemption from paying tax habitation and just paid tax foncieres.
In dec of last year due to the work I'd carried out I contacted the tax office via letter to start paying tax habitation. I have just received my demand for tax foncieres but no habitation, should I have or does that come later?
Creusebear- My Taxe d'habitation bill for 2011 was dated the 21/10/2011 but for 2012 it was dated07/09/2012, and I am yet to receive this years.
In reply to jezj- The taxe d'habitation is relative to whoever was resident in the property on the 1st of January of the year in question, so if you have informed them that your house in now habitable, they may well only take into account the day that they received that letter. In other words if you let them know after the 2nd January, they cannot/will not charge you for the tax, until the following year. Hope this makes sense.
My tax foncieres has doubled this year. I can only presume it has risen because I have applied for planning permission twice in the last 2 years. Once for replacement windows and again to have the pointing renewed. I notice that the rateable value has increased even though the work does not really add much value to property. It has put me off having any work done that will increase the number of rooms. Has anyone had a similar experience?
