2017 French income tax returns for the tax year 2016

Another year has gone by and we are preparing for the high season for the annual tax returns which, thanks to an increase in traffic from our new website franceaccountants.com which is both mobile- and tablet- friendly, will be our busiest to date.

We are waiting on the Tax Office to release the precise filing deadlines for 2017. They usually do so around March time. For now we will work on the assumption that the deadlines will be similar to last year, as follows, and we will update this blog when the exact dates are published.

The online filing service will open in mid-April.


7th June 2017


Départments 01-19:  24th May 2017

Départments 20-49:  31st May 2017

Départments 50-974: 7th June 2017

The filing deadline for the manual returns for residents and non-residents is 18th May 2017, which as in previous years does not allow much time for preparation, given that the forms are not released until late April/ early May!  We would therefore urge all new clients who are filing their first tax return in France, and therefore need to file manually, to contact us as soon as possible so we can schedule the preparation of your returns in time.
