How to pay your Taxe Foncière online

How to pay your Taxe Foncière online

If you own a property in France, you will be liable for the Taxe Foncière.

If you can’t visit your local tax office in person, you can pay your Taxe Foncière online. It’s rather straight-forward.

Please follow this link here. 

Click on « Payer en ligne »

Numéro fiscal : enter your fiscal number which you will find on your income tax form or any other taxes (habitation or foncière)

Click on “Payer en ligne”

Enter the reference number of the tax you are paying.

(référence de l’avis)

Finally you will have to enter your bank details and your email address.

Once the tax is paid you will receive an email confirming your payment. Keep it for your records.

Please note you won’t be able to pay your taxe foncière or habitation (rates) online once you have missed the deadline.

Please send me an email here if you require assistance with paying your taxe d’habitation or taxe foncière online or any other way.

Hi, I live in UK and have a property in France. I am currently in UK and the taxe fonciere bill, which I need to pay, is in France. I have been trying to contact the Tax office for Clussais La Pommeraie but without success, before the deadline for payment. This is my first tax bill, so I don’t have any of the information needed to pay the bill online and, to make matters worse, I speak hardly any French.
I have a French Bank account, but have failed miserably to find a way of paying the tax. Can you help?

    Dear Terence,
    Thank you for your message.
    Unfortunately you have now missed the deadline so you will get charged 10% extra anyway.
    This time of the year it is impossible to call the tax office, and they don’t like giving information over the phone anyway, so I suggest you contact them by ‘normal’ post asking for a copy of your taxe foncière and their RIB (bank details).
    Contact me if you need further assistance.

    Kind regards

Good afternoon.
I bought a property in France April 2016 and reside here full time. Last year I contacted the Immobiliere from whom we purchased the house and asked about the Taxe Fonciere. They told me that there would not be one in 2016 as we had paid a proportion for that year when we signed for the property with the Notaire.
I have not received one for this year and do not know whom to contact. I have asked for help, but no-one has been forthcoming. Can you assist please.

    Hi Trevor
    You really need your taxe d’habitation to be able to pay it online. My clients who have holiday homes in France are just receiving their taxe d’habitation now so yours could be in the post too.
    You could try to email the French tax office asking for a copy of your taxe d’habitation but they are receiving hundreds of emails and they are not able to answer them all at the moment.
    Kind regards
