Am I a French tax resident?
May and June are stressful months, as you must prepare your income tax declaration in this period. The headache worsens if you are a non-resident, because you may not be sure if you need to file your taxes, or what you should be declaring.
To find out, here are some criteria from the French administration. You are a French tax resident if one or more of the following apply:
- Your home or your main place of abode is in France
- Your professional activity is in France, be it employment or not
- The center of your economic interests is in France
However, the criteria for tax residency and the criteria for taxation of your various income sources vary in accordance with the non-double tax treaty between France and your country of origin. We would recommend checking the specific international agreement that applies to your situation in order to avoid any errors or double taxation.
