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.
We’ve helped hundreds of clients resolve their tax issues.
Very friendly and helpful people, quick answers and good work – Thank you
When I was appointed to my job at the headquarters of my company in Paris, it was a big change in my life. A new country, a different culture, totally different ways of life and practices… Luckily, my company had already taken care of this and agreed with some consultant companies to support me in various aspects of this change. Elitax was my consultant on tax subjects. As I learned during my stay in France, tax is a very heavy subject and you cannot survive alone as an expat if you don’t have proper support. That’s where Elitax, i.e. Eliane and her team, come into the picture: They made a very thorough presentation of the tax system in France. I learned clearly my responsibilities and consequences of failure to comply with the requirements. They used their expertise to support me in the preparation of my tax declaration, relations with the authorities, representing me in the tax related communications with the authorities, both during and after my stay in France. I even remember being supported by Elitax team to understand the yearly French obligation to pay tax if you own a TV set at home! Oh, those were the days! Finally, I would like to thank Eliane for her support. She was one of the good people who made my life easy during my stay in France.
We have used Elitax.com for the past three years. At first we were unsure if a firm based in Paris, so far from us would be the correct thing to do. Our French language skills are limited but we had been assured (by other ex-pats) that our tax declarations would be simple and could easily be completed without engaging a professional firm. That is so far from the truth, it is almost a lie! We soon discovered just how the rules are littered with potholes ready to swallow the naive declarant whole. A very simple mistake, in entering our income in the wrong format, led to a very frightening tax investigation. At the conclusion of which we were just advised that our tax forms should be done by someone who knew what they were doing. Elitax were our saviours. Their advice and forms are simple to follow. The firm is efficient and are always available if assistance is needed. They ensure that you are fully aware of your responsibilities in relation to your declarations and they work well to ensure that submissions are made seamlessly. Their online client space is easy to follow. We cannot recommend Elitax enough.
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.
