Forty-nine of us, forty-eight men and one woman, lay on the green waiting for the spike to open. We were too tired to talk much.
However, in the exemptions there is no mention of whether a house being renovated can have any tax discounts? I am getting different information from several sources so a definitive answer would have been great. Thanks for contacting us. However, I am not sure if a renovated property is considered to be the same as a restored property.
For this discount, you have to apply within 90 days of completion of the work, to your local property tax office Centre des Impots Fonciers or Bureau de Cadastre before the 31st December for exemption for the following year.
So I would suggest that you contact this office in order to get a definitive answer as to whether this exemption would apply to your renovation.
And if you are thinking of other tax discounts that you might be able to get, I know you can get tax discounts on materials used in renovating a property if you use a French registered builder, and there are ways of reducing capital gains tax on the sale of a renovated property see our articles on "Tax in France" and "House Renovations in France".
You might also be interested to read our article "Property grants available in France" http: I hope this information will be of some use. I have what I hope is a simple question you may be able to answer. I am now the proud owner of a property in the Charentes which I purchased from an English couple in mid-January this year.
Could you confirm whether I have legal liability for this proportion of the Taxe or it is simply something perhaps they forgot to factor in when they were selling the property they would have been fully aware of Taxe being charged annually as they had been the owners for over 10 years.
With regard to your question about Taxe Fonciere, I understand that in most cases where a property is sold, it is up to the notaire to arrange for new owners ie: If this wasn't included in the papers you signed and this wasn't discussed or agreed between the vendors and yourself, I would say you are under no obligation to pay it.
I certainly don't believe there is a law which states that you must pay this portion of the tax fonciere bill. However, as I am no legal expert, I would suggest you contact a legal advisor, perhaps using one from our Essential section or Services section of our site: I hope that you can help with a question on this tax.
We own an apartment in France and only use it for our own holidays, usually twice a year for a total of a month.
Do we have to pay the full amount of Taxe d'Habitation? Thanks for contacting us and apologies for the delay in reply. In answer to your question, I understand that as long as property is habitable, then the person who occupies it on the 1st of January is liable to pay the full amount of Taxe d'Habitation for that year, even if they might not be physically resident there at that time.
This is also irrespective of how long they may physically be resident there throughout the year. These matters are all decided by your local council authorities and the Mairie, so for further detailed information it might be worth you contacting them.
Can you tell me if I don't live in France but visit the house no more than 20 days a year - am I still liable for Taxe d'Habitation and Taxe Fonciere?
Is this also true? In answer to your questions and as mentioned previously, I understand that as long as property is habitable, then the person who legally occupies it on the 1st of January in any year is liable to pay the full amount of Taxe d'Habitation for that year, even if they might not be physically resident there at that time.
I also believe the Taxe Fonciere must also be paid in full by the legal owners of the property, irrespective of how many days in the year they actually occupy the property for.
There are certain conditions where people may be exempt from paying both taxes or pay a reduced tax, but this is usually only where this property is the main residence.
And with regard to TV licences, I think this must also be paid in full, even though you are only using it for videos. However, as I'm not an expert in these matters, I would suggest you contact your Mairie or local council office, as that is where these decisions are made.
Thanks for the website giving info on the taxes in France. There is something I would like to see added. One person over 75 in poor health.

In accordance with your info there should be concessions concerning both taxes. However the process for applying for them is unclear. I have just trolled through the town making enquiries.
