Updated guide to expat taxes in France

November 10th, 2017 No comments

When you live in France as an expat, one of the most important topics that has a lasting impact on you is taxation. We all hate it, but it’s an essential part of the expat experience. Plus, it funds important services for healthcare, retirement, education, infrastructure, etc. I recommend you hire an accountant to help you with taxes, because of all the regulations, codes and exceptions. But these links and guides below can be a helpful start.
