Around now, all of you home owners should be getting an email from the Tax Office. For those of you that are worried, here is a quick translation:
Dear Madam/Sir/taxpayer,

The Government has made a major reform of local taxation. The first act concerns the housing tax "Taxe d'Habitation": 80% of households will be exempted for their principal residence by 2020. Eventually, this tax will be entirely abolished for all principal residences.

In fact, as of this year, 80% of households will benefit from a 30% reduction in their housing tax on their principal residence: you are part of it.

If you continue to meet the income conditions set by law, your housing tax will be reduced by 65% ​​in 2019 and then eliminated in 2020. However, this gain can be reduced if one of the local authorities that taxes you has increased its tax rate or removed benefits to you.

In accordance with the commitments of the President of the Republic, this strong measure is intended to improve your purchasing power.

Please accept, Madam, Sir, the assurance of my highest consideration.
If your property is a holiday home then this does not affect you. You still have to pay for the next few years, though Mr Macron promised the abolition of this tax so it should disappear in the not too distant future. If you have become tax resident in France, it should be reduced by a third this year, by a further third next year, and disappear completely in 2020.

I am sure the irony has not escaped many of you, where in a couple of years the only people paying the "Habitation" tax are the people that do not "habiter" there. When the directive for the complete elimination of this tax, including holiday homes, is published I will let you know here.
