Taxe foncière deadline day

The deadline for taxe foncière – paid by most homeowners – is today, if you are paying in one of the traditional ways

The main homeowners’ tax - taxe foncière - is payable today if paying in the traditional ways.

This includes methods like cheque, cash or ‘TIP’ (titre interbancaire de paiement)

If you are paying online or on a smartphone using the impots.gouv app, you have until midnight on Sunday, October 20 and the money will be debited on October 25.

If you usually pay taxe foncière in monthly instalments by direct debit then you probably will not have had your bill yet – they are sent out around the end of October. The avis will tell you if you have more tax to pay or not in this case, for example if the tax in your area has increased significantly compared to previous years – if not, the October instalment will have been the last.

If you pay both main local taxes on this basis (called mensualisationavis) forms will be sent from today to early November.

Note that for those owning plots of land other than ordinary gardens, separate taxe foncière sur les propriétés non-bâties may be payable. In some areas this has been steeply increased this year for building land.

Payment dates for taxe d’habitation are roughly a month after taxe foncière.

The deadline for signing up for prélèvement à l’échéance for payment of your taxe d’habitation is October 31 (unless you live in Guadeloupe, Martinique or Guyane in which case it is November 30). If opting for this you will be automatically debited on November 25, as opposed to this tax being payable on November 15.
