Local tax bills on the way

The avis d’imposition for the taxe foncière local property tax for homeowners will be going out this month, unless you have been making monthly payments (mensualisation), in which case it is sent at the end of October. 

If you pay both main local taxes on a monthly basis, a letter with both of your avis sheets will be sent from October 15 to early November.

Your avis will show how much you have to pay and by when, and the calculation.

You are also able to see your avis in your personal space at

The deadline for payments is October 16, or October 21 at midnight if you pay online (in which case you are debited on October 26). September 30 is the deadline to sign up to pay à l’échéance, involving a direct debit from your bank account, 10 days after the payment date. You may sign up to pay next year’s tax on a monthly basis starting in January 2018 if you do so by December 15, 2017.

For taxe d’habitation, payable by whoever lives in a home on January 1 of the year, most bills will be sent next month, with a payment deadline of November 15. Ones for second homes may be sent up to the end of November, in which case the deadline is December 15.

You will be able to see your bill in your space on the tax website from mid-October.
