Since January 1, 2023, a reporting obligation has been put in place for all owners by Bercy. The form must be sent before July 31 after the one-month postponement by the Directorate General of Public Finance because only 61% of owners made the declaration.

A little reminder to the 34 million French owners: have you filled out your property occupancy declaration correctly? This is a novelty from Bercy from January 1, 2023 and you must send this form before July 31. A deadline already postponed by one month by the Directorate General of Public Finance because only 61% of owners have done so. But concretely, why such a fiasco?

The size of the property is a problem

First, this statement is not available in hard copy. An obstacle for some user owners who are uncomfortable with the Internet. But what most often poses a problem is the surface area of ​​the property. “When I declared my taxes, I remember that I saw my apartment appear which is 50 square meters but it was marked 78 square meters. So I’m a little afraid that it will raise the property tax. It’s a little scary but hey, I validated anyway. There was a message on the tax site which said that we had to validate and that if there was a problem, we would be contacted, “explains Salomé, owner of an apartment in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. .

Some data from the tax authorities are not up to date or simply incorrect. But the differences in area could also come from the fact that the General Directorate of Public Finance makes its calculations according to the cadastre and not on the basis of the Carrez law. Some owners have asked the public finance centers for explanations. Others choose to ignore the declaration altogether. Bercy has promised to show clemency for this first edition, the fine of 150 euros per undeclared property is not applied.
