Housing tax: changes that have benefited the French
In 2018, the State had already noticed a drop in the payment of residence taxes. A pretty strong charge that pushed the French to take pretty drastic measures. And the resulting decision was simply ideal for the French with a primary residence there. Therefore, it is not surprising that the State has allowed a cancellation of the latter for the year 2021 for some houses.
Already at that time, these were almost 80% of households that have been exempt from this city tax. If the others could not escape, other alternatives were proposed by the State. This then involved a payment with a reduction of about 30%. And things could still get better for the year we just started.
A new discount in sight!
Therefore, by 2022, the rate of the housing tax will be reduced once again. A difference that this time will be 65% to lighten French homes on your expense. It should be noted that the calculation of this tax is carried out according to several criteria. This is particularly the case depending on the department you are in. The different construction details of your home should also be taken into account during this payment process.

In the case of an RFR of 44,830 euros for two people, the amount of the 100% relief is granted by the State. If the latter is estimated between 44,380 euros and 46,914 euros, the household can only benefit from a partial exemption. As you can see, everything will depend on your income!
