I think most people expect the impots to know what they are doing,I know they make the odd mistake but normally they base everything on the figures we provide them,tax habitation reduction is based on a sliding scale and reduces based on income and age,how the criteria for the TV licence exoneration works I hav'nt a clue,but I would assume that if you were not obliged to pay then your bill would read zero.

And also only applicable to résidences principales, no reductions for holiday homes.

Doesn't anyone do any research?

Exonerations from Tax d' Hab is based on earnings and age.

Maybe that depends where you are, but here in the Midi Pyrenees, as we pay no tax on our pension, we do not pay TV licence, or tax d´habitation.

Maybe your department is different.

Dagbaruch not sure that's correct ,I've never paid income tax but I have always paid the TV licence fee and a little tax habitation.I am now on a disability pension and still pay full whack on the tax fonciere.

Taxe d´habitation  (including TV licence) is onlt paid if you earn enough to pay income tax.  Not sure about holiday homes, if these are classed differently.

If you have a low income the impots will allow you to pay this years bill monthly, normally five payments,its not too late if you want to pay next years by monthly payments,you can set it up online for next year but this years you would need to go and see them.

you will have to pay the tax d'habitation and fonciere  in full this year, but can apply to pay monthly in future.
