Launched since Thursday April 13, 2023, the tax return campaign must be made within the deadlines indicated by Bercy. For those who wish to declare it on the Internet, you have until Thursday, May 25, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. (for zone 1 and non-residents), Thursday, June 1, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. (for zone 2), and Thursday June 8, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. (for zone 3), to complete it on the tax administration website (impots.gouv.fr). On the other hand, those who wish to declare their income with the paper form, have until May 22 at midnight to send their mail.
Filers who do not meet this date limit may receive a 10% surcharge on their income tax.
It is therefore time for everyone to declare their income. To help you save some money on your bill, we have listed several very simple tips in our slideshow that can help you reduce the amount.
It is common for some declarants to forget to fill in a few boxes, not knowing that they can benefit from some reductions depending on their personal and family situation. For example, taxpayers with investment income may sometimes forget to complete the “2OP” box. This box, corresponding to the line “You opt for taxation at the scale of your income from movable capital and gains from the sale of securities”, therefore allows you to choose taxation at the scale of income tax (IR), rather than capital income (income from movable capital, gains from the sale of securities, etc.) which is taxed directly on the single flat-rate levy (PFU). As Capital explains to us: “This option is particularly interesting for households whose marginal tax bracket is 0% (non-taxable) or 11%. Because a TMI of 11% is lower than the flat rate of 12.8% income tax at the flat tax.
But then what are the other checkboxes to save money that can apply to your tax return? We list them in our slideshow.
