Midnight Thursday deadline for French tax declarations

Thursday marks the latest tax deadline in France - with around one third of the country required to file their annual income tax declaration by midnight at the latest.


The annual income tax declaration must be completed by virtually everyone who lives in France - even those who have no income here (for example retirees living on a pension from another country).

The deadline for those filing on paper has already passed (it was on May 22nd) while people living in départements 1-19, or outside of France, had until May 25th to complete the declaration.

The next deadline is Thursday, June 1st at 11.59pm and that is for inhabitants of départements 20 to 54.

Those living in départements 55 to 96, and France's overseas départements, have until 11.59pm on Thursday, June 8th to complete their declarations.

The process is now largely online, but there are also exemptions for people who do not have internet access or those not confident on completing the process online.


You can find the full tax calendar HERE.

If you are unable to complete the declaration in time, you have until June 29th to contact the tax office and request a remise gracieuse (remission) in order to avoid late fees and penalties. Full details of how to apply for an extension HERE.

The annual declaration should include details of all your income, even that from outside France.

You can find full details on how to complete the form HERE and further information in our tax section HERE.

If you own property in France, this year you must also complete a one-off property tax declaration. The deadline for this is June 30th.
