I have, like countless others, to make this home owner declaration before the 30th, I think.
My problem, it appears, is that my previous online dealings with the tax have been via a now defunct email address, that’s not been used for many a year.
So the question is "How do I update my personal details in the gouv.fr impots site, with an out of date address ?
Hoping for a quick & easy solution.
Most local small towns now have one - it’s a sort of outpost of the state helping people with tax and other goverment-related necessities! It’s to save people travelling to the main centres and also to help people who aren’t au fait with on-line facilities to deal with those.
Oh bollox - been meaning to sort this, was there a deadline
Mind you the amount of official communication regarding the declaration appears to have been zero.
That said I’m pretty sure the classification will be correct - the local trésor definitely has the house as a maison secondaire and (assuming French agencies join the dots) I filled in the census with that info.
I’m slightly bothered by the fact that I don’t have an espace on the impôts site (and don’t have the right numbers to set one up), but I’ll try to check to see how far I get in the next couple of days.
Well, well, well - they finally wrote (to my UK address).
I know that “it’s your responsibility to be aware of legislation which affects you” but outwith being signed up to forums like this one, which accounts for a tiny fraction of 2nd home owners how the heck are you supposed to find out?
Perhaps they’re sending letters to those folk for whom they have no email address.
I know they’re sending out email Reminders …
well, I’m sure we’re not the only ones they’ve reminded…
They can “see” that we’ve visited, read the bumf… but not yet completed the necessary (due to queries)… now they’re telling us that even if we have queries… we need to confirm who lives where… or something like that…
