Income tax in France

French individual income tax ranges from 14% (earnings below €26,564) to 30% to 45% (earnings over €151,956). France has a regime of joint taxation for married couples and individuals who have contracted a civil union. Income tax is assessed on the combined income of the members of the household including dependents.

A favorable expatriate tax law applies and under certain conditions, expatriates seconded to France may not be taxed on compensation items relating to the assignment in France, such as a cost-of-living allowance, housing cost reimbursement and tax equalisation payments. The main condition is that the taxpayer must not have been considered a tax resident of France in any of the five tax years preceding his or her year of arrival in France. In addition, up to 20% of the remaining taxable compensation can potentially be excluded if the expatriate performs services outside of France during the assignment.
