Hi folks, I am about to submit my first tax declaration in France. This is for the income for 2015. The clerk in the tax office gave me 2 forms, 2042(blue) and 2047(pink). He put little crosses on the sections I have to complete and told me to return them by 18th May. I have 2 questions for you guys
1) A friend has told me to fill in only the pink one or I'll be incorrectly charged tax in France on the amounts on the blue one but the clerk clearly stated to complete both, although the figures will be exactly the same. What is the view out there?
2) On reading various sources I am worried that I will have to pay another tax which will in fact put our stay here in jepody. Me and my hubby receive pensions from our government service jobs. We are both under state retirment age, we have no other income at all. I beleive our tax paid in the UK will be effectively credited to us so we pay nil "income tax" here BUT I am begining to think we have to pay "Contribution Social" at about 7.5% of total income. We already pay about 8% of income above 9k to URSAAF for our CPAM (carte vital). Can anyone tell me if that is so?
