I’m sure l’ve seen this subject discussed previously but l cannot find what l need. As usual we visited the local tax office today to ensure our declarations d’impot were correct only to be told that we will be liable to 1347 euros in prelevement sociaux, which is 6.6% of our pension, in addition to our income tax liability. We have previously been exempt from these charges.
We are a retired couple in receipt of UK state pensions and a few small UK private pensions and are both in possession of Form S1. The tax offcial told us that the regulations are being more rigorously applied and that we are now liable to pay these charges. He even provided me with a copy of the regulations entitled ‘Document pour remplir la declaration de revenus de 2017’ subheaded
REVENUS D’ACTIVITE ET DE REMPLACEMENT DE SOURCE ETRANGERE’ it is a complicated six sided document which we found very confusing.
Has anybody had the same problem or can anyone tell us if the S1 exemption rules still apply,and if so where will we find the regulations so that we can take them back to the tax office and discuss the matter further.
Any assistance would be gratefully received
