Individuals who are tax residents of France, regardless of nationality, are subject to real estate wealth tax if the value of their worldwide real estate assets is over €1,300,000
If your clients are in this situation, they must file an annual wealth tax return with the French Tax Administration. Elitax is here to help them with their real estate wealth tax return.
Category 1 – They earn no income but their real estate wealth exceeds 1 300 000 euros but is less than 2 570 000 euros: They need to file only a French real estate wealth tax return
Category 2 – They earn income and their real estate wealth exceeds 1 300 000 euros but is less than 2 570 000 euros: They need to file an integrated income and real estate wealth tax return
Category 3 – They earn income and their real estate wealth exceeds 2 570 000 euros: They need to file two returns (an income tax return and a separate real estate wealth tax return)
We guarantee all wealth tax returns prepared by us as long as these are submitted without any changes. We do not guarantee real estate wealth tax returns in cases where information has not been supplied or has been incorrectly given or withheld.

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.
After many disappointing experiences with so called “bilingual accountant,” I was finally introduced to Eliane. She understood my situation as an owner of the second house in France and my tax position as a UK citizen straight away and helped me towards the right direction. Apart from the efficiency and accuracy of her work, I also appreciate her friendly and caring approach very much. I used to find the French tax declaration on my rental business as a burdensome duty but now with Eliane, it has become much less of a burden! I highly recommend her firm to anyone who, like me, not very competent in French to deal with the complicated tax issues in France.
Neither my employer nor I had any experience with detached employee contracts. In my first few months moving from Paris to New York, we discovered many gaps in social protection and unexpected higher taxation obligations. The counsel we received from Elitax helped frame our choices, and enabled us to put everything in order. My company was smarter for the next set of expat assignments. Thanks, Elitax!
“Excellent, friendly, bilingual service for those with French tax problems or wanting advice. I can personally recommend Elitax.”
