Tax information as resident in a rental in France :
Taxe d’Habitation : any resident with an address in France pays. The most common is about 500 to 1000 EUR per year, calculated on the surface and quality level of the rental, your income is taken in account too.
Taxe d’enlèvement des ordures ménagères : Around 150 to 200 EUR per year. Tax for garbage, only calculated on your type, surface of rental, (and number of living people here too I think). The owner of the rental receives this tax notification on his Property tax form (Taxe Foncière) and he has to justify it to you, as YOU pay it.
Taxe redevance TV : public radio / television tax for any owner of a TV screen. 139 EUR in 2017, raises each year by 2 EUR.
Sanitation cost : ask the water service if the sanitation costs are included in their bills. If not, think you will almost double their bill with a sanitation cost that will be delivered directly by the Town Hall or other Department service.
