Filling out a French real estate wealth tax return can be tricky if you’ve never filled one out before, or if you’ve only recently fallen into the tax bracket. That’s where Elitax can help.

We’ll look at your circumstances during our free initial 30-minute consultation, identify your needs and help you write up a watertight wealth tax return.

What Do I Need to Know About French Real Estate Wealth Tax Returns?

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 you are in this situation, you must file an annual real estate wealth tax return with the French Tax Administration — and Elitax is here to help you with exactly that.

How Do I Know What Real Estate Wealth Tax Category I Am In?

To fill out your wealth tax return, you need to know which category you are in first. If you’re unsure where you lie, please feel free to contact us and we’ll help you find out.

Category 1 – You earn no income and your real estate wealth exceeds €1,300,000 but is less than €2,570,000:

You only need to file a French real estate wealth tax return.

Category 2 – You earn income and your real estate wealth exceeds €1,300,000 but is less than €2,570,000:

You need to file an integrated income and real estate wealth tax return.

Category 3 – You earn income and your real estate wealth exceeds €2,570,000:

You need to file two returns (an income tax return and a separate real estate wealth tax return).

The Importance of Filing Your Wealth Tax Return Properly

It’s important to file your real estate wealth tax return properly in order to avoid any penalties or fines from the French Tax Administration. In fact, failing to file your return in a timely manner could result in interest and penalties on the unpaid taxes.

Those who don’t make a declaration on time usually face an interest charge of 0.4% for every month that the return is delayed, as well as a 10% more tax liability. These fees compound, so it’s important to get your return filed as soon as possible.

To avoid this, simply make sure you fill out all of your forms correctly when filing, or else let us do it for you! Our experts are able to handle everything from simple tax returns to more complex real estate wealth tax returns with ease.
