Hi all, we have been living but not working in France for nearly a year now and am now wondering whether we will be sent a tax return or do we have to go and get one from the hotel des impots. Surely if it is imperative to fill one in every resident in France should be sent one or is that just me using common sense when it comes to bureaucracy ! Also our tax return would be based on what we earnt in England in the first half of last year which we have already paid tax on and was obviously in stirling how would we fill that in on the form. Thanks for any infotmation

Hello. I've heard that installing additional bathrooms or toilets increases the amount of tax d'habitation that you have to pay. Does anyone know if this is true and if so, how much extra does it add on to the annual bill?Thanks

Advice for a friend please. They have their eye on a house near us but want to get a french mortgage if it is possible (cheaper interest rate I believe). Although they both still work in the UK. Does anybody know if this is possible. Many thanks in advance

Hi, am i the only one that this has happened to.We arrived in france 3 and a half years ago, we have a family and have been in the system paying taxes and social charges on our earnings and recieving child benefit etc.The only piece of this jigsaw are the carte vitales. After all this time we still only have attastations which last for 6 months of which our latest ones have run out so ram say they are sending new ones which arrive about a month late.Every time we present the said attastations at doctors or chemists etc its always a problem!!! how long did everyone else have to wait for theirs???? Thanks

I understand that women working in France are normally given a social security number that starts with a 2 (men with a 1) but I have been given something that starts with a 6. Does anybody please know the reason why this should be?

Hi everyone - my query poss seems silly but I'm confused which SS number to use. CPAM initially issued an Attestation in my husband's name but covering me as I was only eligible under his E106. (after 18mths !!) I've just noticed the Carte Vitales quote different SS nos. That on my husband's card matches the Attestation but mine is totally different. I do know the 15 digits are made up of gender/dob/nationality etc etc. I'm currently making an Auto Entrepreneur registration and wonder which SS number to quote. I thought that one SS number only was issued per household - not individuals as in UK. I picked up the anomaly when scanning in my ID docs ! Would appreciate anyone's comments, many thanks.
