Have you overpaid your tax in France?

If you are a non resident of France and have any rental income there, you may have inadvertently paid extra charges on that for the past couple of years.
Francois Hollande, that champagne socialist president of France brought in social charges on all capital income, even for non residents on income from 2013 onwards.
This has now been deemed by the European Court of Justice as illegal as social charges should not be charged to people who do not live in the country.
If you have paid this, you are entitled to a refund. Sneakily, this charge would have appeared on your tax bill and not a separate social charges bill...
You will not be informed so you will have to chase this up yourself.

Here is a link to a very good article ( in English) telling you what to do to reclaim your social charges

  1. Ireland is a total dump. You talk about cronyism and corruption in France - you must have your head well buried in the Irish muck. Ireland is a stinking country of vile bureaucrats and government vermin who operate with backhanders. Worst country in Europe. Americanised moronism is what Ireland does best.
