Ignoring the tax credits system could mean you pay more tax than you owe. Whether you’re in the business of organic farming, or just need help covering childcare costs, there could be tax credits for you.
Tax credits can significantly lower the amount of income tax for which a taxpayer is liable. In some cases, it can actually lead to a reimbursement from the government. If the total amount of a person’s tax credits exceeds the total income tax owed, the difference is reimbursed by the French Tax Administration.

Elitax was recommended to me by a friend just before I moved to Paris several years ago. From the onset Eliane was extremely helpful and articulate — her command of English is as superb as her knowledge of international tax laws and bilateral agreements between EU nations. She quite quickly dissolved any apprehension I might have had and explained things in a quite lucid manner. Elitax has handled my affairs ever since and I can not recommend their services more highly.
Very friendly and helpful people, quick answers and good work – Thank you
In the context of constant movement of the work force between world’s countries and not a uniformed way of taxation laws, for a foreigner can be a struggle to adapt to the local financial and taxation system. As an expat in Paris, Elitax was for me the compass and help needed to understand the French system. The communication with Elitax was easy, professional and with great English level. What, how and when to do all the applications in order to respect French fiscal system were explained in a comprehensive way. I strongly recommend Elitax as your expat consultant. I would return as a customer to their service.
Elitax was referred to me a couple of years ago, where I first met Eliane. Being a new Impatriate to France, Eliane was excellent in easing me into the ways of the French tax system, appropriate to my situation. Her clear explanations, obvious great knowledge of the subject and generosity with her time and effort has made life so much easier than it could have been. I have to say that whenever I have needed to call upon Eliane she has responded promptly and I can definitely say she ‘goes the extra mile’ to help. If anyone needs tax advice as someone coming into France then I advise them to contact Eliane. I am very happy to endorse Elitax.
