The French Tax Administration (« DGFIP ») has opened up resources enabling taxpayers to determine how their local council taxes paid on their French homes and properties are calculated.
For the record, French Property taxes are divided in two folds : the “Taxe Foncière” is paid by the owner or the landlord if any, and the “Taxe d’Habitation” is paid by the tenant, if any, at 1st January of each taxable year.
The code lines are accessible online at :
- For the Taxe Foncière (“Landlord property tax”)
- For the Taxe d’Habitation (“Tenant property tax”)
