Property Tax

Posted by ifs-194624 - Created: 14 years ago

My brother has asked if there is a 3% property tax for owners of first or second home owners in France.  I am not aware of one unless it was the basis of calculating taxe d'habitation along the lines of the historical property values linked to council tax in the UK.

Is anyone aware of any property taxes?

With thanks

Thanks riffa.  I too had also heard of some percentage based tax from a French friend.  However he is currently renting and reckons it is only applicable to home owners.  I can't believe that it would not be assessed and charged directly so maybe it doesn't exist.  But if anyone knows differently...

I have heard of something like this from a French friend.  I don't know what it is though, sorry.  But nor have I paid it to my knowledge :-)
