Is there a charge for a carte de sejour?

I think I have everything ready to take to get the carte de sejour, But last time I seem to remember having to take some 'timbres fiscale' amounting to 150FF.  Is there an equivalent amount in Euros to take? Or do they accept cheques now?

Also, are the people at the prefecture likely to be striking tomorrow????

There is certainly no charge for a renewal which can be done at the local Marie - with the normal documents giving total family history and more!!

If you are not from outside EU you should be better wait for 2 more weeks until asking for the carte de sejour. There will probably be no more obligation to have one as the french gouvernement will decide mid-juin whether to stop it for EU-citizens or not.
