Has anyone had their property re-assessed for tax Fon. and Hab. because they think that their charges are too high?
I have a holiday home near Le Teilleul which is 3 bedroomed house built 1906, with a wooden garage and shed, a colombage barn and the old original small colombage house and stables which are derelict, but have a good roof.
3/4 acre of ground mainly grass.
My TF is 1120Eu and my TH is 990Eu. these seem very high for what the property is.
There was a son who had a wine business there of a previous French owner over 20 years ago.
How does one go about getting it inspected please?
What has made you suddenly query this ???
Has the tax changed very much over the last 8 years ???
Of course, it is worth checking that the classification is correct… eg Residential not
Commercial… since you mention that there was a wine business there in the past… but I would have thought that situation would have raised its head before now.
You can ask for the property to be revalued… but as previously mentioned… this can backfire.
Before contacting the Centre des Impots Foncier… a simple query to your Mairie asking when the property was last “valued”…(or if it has been revalued)… might give you the answer you seek… without causing you any financial problems…
Thanks Stella for the info.
I thought it was expensive compared to other properties when i bought it.
I think i will go and see the Marie and ask when it was valued.
It has gone up around 200Eu in 8 years.
Ah…the “value/base figure” of mine has gone up by about 200€ in the last 20 years… but it will go up again by 20% this year, due to the “figure” being corrected after an inspection last year by the Géometre… oops. (that’s another story and definitely not my fault… and at least they did not backdate it by 20 years)
