The last of the deadlines for online income tax declarations passes early this month.
The deadline for filing a paper tax return was midnight on May 17. Those who filed their returns online had slightly longer, depending on where they live. The last of those deadlines - for anyone living in departments 50 and upwards - is June 5.
Online declaration has become compulsory since 2016 above a certain income level, set at €15,000 euros this year against €28,000 in 2017. It is intended that almost all declarations be filed online from next year.
The cost of second-opinion medical consultations with a GP or specialist will rise from €48 to €50, while those for a a psychiatrist, a neuropsychiatrist or a neurologist, will go up from €60 to €62.50.
At the start of the year, the number of vaccinations for children jumped from three to 11 for children born after January 1, 2018. June 1 sees the first administrative checks begin for children entering nursery to ensure they have had the required injections.
