Taxation on residence permits

Taxation on residence permits - A parliamentary report in France has criticized the high taxation on residence permits which must be paid by foreigners residing in France. The report published on Wednesday says the amount of these contributions may "compromise the integration of certain foreigners" in the country thus creating a "vicious circle".

The report details that the amount of these taxes is variable but often represents 269 euros per residence permit, or 609 euros in certain special situations.  In 2017, the proceeds from these taxes and the associated stamp duty amounted to €193.11 million.

According to elected officials, the high price leads some people to seek help from associations or communal centers of social action, which represents "an undue financial burden" on these structures.
