Re: Income Tax
I do not know if you have moved to France since the time you sent this message.
I am a French chartered accountant and I will try to answer your question.
In France, personal income tax is not directly withheld on your revenues.
Income tax in France is based:
- on your worldwide revenues if you are a French tax resident (double taxation can be offset through various mecanisms according to Tax treaties);
- on your French ource revenues if you are considered as a non tax resident in France.
Income tax is calculated on the revenues of your "family" and the tax rate is determined according to the following brackets:
from 0 to 5 963 0
from 5 963 to 11 896 5,5%
from 11 896 to 26 420 14%
from 26 420 to 70 830 30%
from 70 830 41%
In France, the tax returns for the year 2010 will have to be sent:
-for French tax residents:
by May 31 2011 if they are sent by regular post mail.
However, there are some exra deadlines, if you submit the tax return by internet.
- if you are not considered as a French tax resident:
current June 2011.
Do not hesitate to contact me , should you need any other information.
