Income tax in France: what is form 2041E?

In our monthly money column you'll find advice on important financial matters in France. In the June issue, Hugh MacDonald explains form 2041E in relation to income tax, and much more.

A: Form 2041E relates to tax at source but it is not new and is not linked to the introduction of across the board tax-at-source in January 2019. This form concerns non-residents who have French sources of income from which tax has already been taken at source in France. Its purpose is to notify this fact to the non-residents’ tax service via your declaration.

Firstly, note that it only relates to non-residents – so it should not have come up if you are a French resident – and secondly, it only concerns people who have certain French incomes directly subject to tax at source, such as money from salaried work in France or from French pensions.

Those concerned should fill in the relevant incomes on this annexe section, including the amount of tax taken at source by the employer or pension body. The amounts are also carried over into the relevant main sections of the tax declaration and the total amount of tax taken at source in France goes in box 8TM on the main 2042 declaration. If the form does not apply to your situation, you do not have to fill it in.
