For expatriates, the French tax system can be very different to what they are used to. As a result, tax returns are often daunting. While the concept is the same as in most other countries, the process is unfamiliar.
Elitax provides income tax return services for tax residents, making it quick and easy to deal with your finances. See how we can help with your taxes in France by claiming a free 30-minute consultation with our French tax advisors.
To make life easier for you, we’ve put together a five-step process that shows how our income tax return services for tax residents work:
Through the questionnaire, we’ll be able to identify any rebates, Tax deductions and /or tax credits to which you may be entitled. The information we gather will help us prepare a complete tax return and avoid any issues which may negatively affect your finances.
If it’s your first time filing a tax return, you must file it on paper. We send you the completed tax forms, which you then sign and mail to the French Tax Administration. Those who have already filed at least once in France must file online, which we’ll take care of.
We’ve been in the business for over 15 years. In that time, we’ve dealt with income tax for hundreds of expatriates, optimising their tax bills and reducing the stress that comes with filing tax returns.
When you choose Elitax for your French income tax return, you’ll be working with a team of bilingual accountants with over 15 years of experience. We guarantee that your case will be dealt with in a clear and professional manner.
Our fees are competitively priced, reflecting the quality of the service provided. Our experience and expertise will guarantee your tax bill is optimised and tax returns are submitted on time.
We provide a guarantee on all income tax returns prepared by us, providing they are filed without any changes or incorrect information. This added peace of mind will make your French tax return a stress-free process.
A person who is a resident of France for tax purposes must declare all of their income for tax, including both income from French sources and income received abroad. Failure to accurately declare any income could result in significant penalties.
Income tax in France is calculated using a progressive rate, but there are other factors to consider. France has a number of tax treaties with other countries, which are designed to avoid double taxation.
Elitax will work with you to ensure you take full advantage of the treaty arrangements which are relevant to your situation.
Not all those who live in France are official tax residents. During our free consultation, we’ll work out if you are considered a tax resident or tax non-resident. We can then prepare your French income tax return as appropriate.
We’ve helped hundreds of clients resolve their tax issues.

I have had the pleasure of working with Eliane at Elitax for the past three years. She makes what seems like a complicated foreign system for an expat straightforward, efficient and timely! Eliane and her team handle any questions or requests from the Impots Francais quickly and help put your mind at ease.
