Swimming pool: what tax increase should we expect after construction?


After a violent heat wave, France should again face a heat wave in August 2022. Faced with this, some will again choose the swimming pool. Why deprive yourself, once it has been installed? Especially since in this area, France is not left out! In 2020, more than 70,000 in-ground pools were built while 126,500 above-ground pools were erected. In all and for all, indicates the specialized site ProPiscine, the country then had nearly 3 million private swimming pools. What to think that others could in turn cross the Rubicon in 2022… But beware! Such an operation could have a price. And not just at the time of construction or delivery.

Changing the characteristics of your home automatically leads to the analysis, by the tax authorities, of the new rental value of the property. This will allow the calculation of the housing tax as well as the property tax, even if it is possible to be exempt from the latter for two years… provided you remember to file declaration 6704 at the tax center. on time (i.e. less than 90 days before the end of the work).

The construction of a swimming pool, recalls the women’s weekly Femme Actuelle, is part of such work. In theory, it is then necessary to count on an increase of 10 to 40% of its housing tax from the first year and at least as much for the property tax from the third. On good terms.
