I got an (totally unexpected) official république française bill today, thought I’d done all the bills for this year. Looks like they want €160 because of the car I own (owned on 01/01/2020). It is because it’s a “high polluting vehicle”. I thought this was included in the “malus” tax when you got the certificat d’immatriculation, but the car was over 10 years old when I re-registered it last year so didn’t pay anything.
Is this something new? I’ve had other not so economical cars in the past but never had this tax before.
