You can review anytime what you have entered online - check the figures you have entered again  and that you have put them against the right descriptions - completing when  a pensioner are entered into different sections than those for a non pensioner.

Thank you Laghingboy and Eurokine I see from your posts you both know a lot about life in France. I/We have lived in France for 20 years and are used to paying tax here .However this year I have filled out the form online and  my tax comes to 2000 E on an gross pension  income of less then 37000 E it seems a lot more then other years.

If you are resident you are obliged to fill in the tax form-its up to them, not you, to decide you do or dont have to pay tax

Income abroad should also be declared whereupon bilateral tax agreements come into play so you dont (technically) get taxed twice.

If you have problems filling in the form either see your bank who will have someone to help at this time of year ,or the local tax office ditto, or an accountant.

For an estimation of your likely tax bill go on the impots.gouv site and do a simulation (probably in french but Im not sure)

Even if you don't pay tax it is best to fill in a tax form as you won't get your reductions in taxe d'habitation etc if you don't.
