Simplification and lower taxes on French residence permits

9 December 2019 | Flash News

In June, 2 deputies submitted a report to the Finance Committee to simplify taxes on French Residence Permits. An amendment has been made to the latter (Article 6 of the 2020 Finance Bill) and the associated taxes should change in 2020:

  • There will be a single basic rate of €200  (instead of the current €250),
  • There will be a single reduced rate of €50 for students and equivalent, accident and sickness pensioners and children over 18 years old who have been admitted on the basis of the right to family reunification since they were minors.
  • Full tax exemptions will be maintained for protected or vulnerable persons: refugees, subsidiary protected persons, stateless persons and their families, veterans, unaccompanied minors, sick persons (for first-time applications), pensioners and victims of trafficking or domestic violence (including first-time applicants and renewal applications).
  • On the other hand, the general stamp duty will increase from €19 to €25

For example, a “Talent Passport – European Blue Card” Residence Permit card should cost €225, instead of the current €269.
