We currently don't pay for our TV license on the Tax D'Habitation as we do not have a TV or any means of watching a TV at our house in France. This has been approved by the tax department.
We don't want to pay for a TV license until we actually have a TV at the house - obviously.
What I want to know is if you get a TV after 1 January (date on declaration) say half way through the year do you just wait until the next Tax D'Habitation to pay the license or do you pay for a license for part of the year. If you get a company such as Orange out to install TV services, do they advise the Tax Department. Just trying to do everything by the book to avoid any fines but don't want to pay for the license until we actually have a TV at the house.
