    We recently received the demand for our Taxe Fonciere and the amount came as a bit of a shock. In our last house, we only paid 19 euros because of Mr. F’s age and the fact that our low income means we are non-imposable for tax. This is the first demand we’ve had since moving to this house and 286 euros seemed a lot and no dégrévement (relief) was shown.

    I sent an email from our espace client on the website saying as Mr. F. is 80 yrs old and we’re non-imposable I wondered if we are eligible for a dégrévement, sure enough, we have received an email today saying we will shortly be receiving a notice of a dégrévement of 238 euros –  so it’s always worth asking!

    I thought our ‘Taxe Fonciere’  was cheap at €820 per year considering our location right on the coast. Where in Brittany is it €19? That’s unbelievable! Well done you for querying it!

    I suppose I find myself making comparisons with the UK Council Tax – ours was about £1700 per year in Cornwall but not on the coast.

    Always worth knowing your rights, the taxman often gets it wrong. Good for you Fruitcake, some would have just excepted it!
