Income tax

The French 2013 Finance Act introduced a mandatory deduction on account which will be levied at a rate of 21% on dividends for private individuals who are French tax residents. An exemption is available to households where the reference taxable income is lower than €50,000 (for a single person) or €75,000 (couples subject to joint taxation) for the penultimate year preceding the year in which the income is received, by making a request, accompanied by a sworn statement, to their bank by November 30 of the year prior to the receipt of the income at the latest.
