French residence tax will be abolished on all primary residences – maybe

Posted by admin on 10/04/2019

The French residence tax, taxe d’habitation, has been hotly debated lately. The removal of the residence tax was one of President Macron’s election promises, and it now looks like it will be abolished altogether in 2022 for all primary homes in France.

As we have seen with the Finance Bill for 2018, the taxe d’habitation is gradually being phased out for 80% of primary homes. However, it has long been debated whether the abolition should also apply to the most wealthy homeowners, and there have been some doubts about the government’s position on the subject. But at the beginning of this month, the Minister for Public Accounting, Gérald Darmanin, confirmed to the National Assembly that the taxe d’habitation will be removed for everyone in 2022 regardless of income, and that the abolition “undoubtedly” will be included in the draft text for next year’s budget negotiations. For owners of secondary and holiday homes in France, however, the residence tax will be unchanged.

Taxe d’habitation is an annual residence tax imposed on the occupier of a property in which they were resident on 1st January of each year.

We will follow up on the case when more information is available.
