During a press conference, Bruno Lemaire, Minister of the Economy, Finance and Recovery, and Olivier Dussopt, Minister Delegate in charge of public accounts, kicked off the declaration campaign of 2020 revenues.
The online declaration service has been open since this morning, Thursday April 8, on impots.gouv.fr. At the same time, 14.4 million paper declarations are gradually being sent by La Poste from April 6 to April 27 to taxpayers who had used this channel to declare their income in 2019 or 2020.
The deadline for submitting online declarations depends on the place of residence.
It is set for May 26 at 11:59 p.m. for taxpayers residing in a department numbered from 01 to 19 and non-residents at 1er June 11.59 p.m. for departments numbered 20 to 54, and June 8, 2021 (11.59 p.m.) for departments no.55 to 974/976.
Tax notices from July 26
For users who are unable to declare their income online, the deadline for filing declarations is May 20, at midnight, regardless of their place of residence, including for non-residents. Tax notices will be made available to taxpayers in their specific space between July 26 and August 6.
For those who have chosen the paper declaration, their tax notice will be sent to them by mail between July 30 and September 7 at the latest. If applicable, the balance of tax and social security contributions will be payable by September 15 at the latest.
Implemented for the first time last year for some 11 million taxpayers, the new simplified declaration system known as “automatic declaration” has been extended to new categories of users.
These are particularly households that have declared a birth, in their particular space by the service “Manage my deduction at source” on impots.gouv.fr during the year 2020, as well as those who had opted, last year, when filing their income tax return for taxation at the progressive scale for income from their savings.
A document summarizing the income and expenses known to the tax administration is made available to them in their personal space or sent by mail to their home for those who had declared in paper format in 2019 or 2020. All they need to do is verify the accuracy. and the completeness of the information presented in these documents.
If they are correct and complete, their declaration is automatically validated without any action on their part. Clearly, they do not need to electronically sign the document made available to them or send it back by mail.
However, if they need to complete or modify certain information, they must submit a declaration. To do this, they must click on the “declare online” button accessible from their automatic declaration or complete and return the paper declaration they have received.
