Maison Secondaire

Don't know if this has been mentioned in the past, but last night it was mentioned on french news that some communes have in fact taken up the option of increasing the taxe d'hab for second home owners by a further 20%.

One lady who was interviewed usually pays 2000€ per year and this year it is now 2400€, so much for the myth of french property taxes being low (ours  was never low either).

Quite a few places have done it, ie Cran Gevrier, which is a town in the Haute Savoie, has decided not to use this right to collect the extra tax.

And yet quite a few places have put it in place already.

The more that do it, I would imagine the cash strapped mairies will be considering doing it too.

I have no idea if it would apply to communes below a certain population though.

It applies to areas where there is a shortage of housing


in essence

Ces zones tendues ne concernent pas que les grandes agglomérations françaises comme Paris, Lyon ou Marseille. De nombreuses villes d'agglomérations plus petites, comme celles d'Annecy, Beauvais, Fréjus ou Saint-Nazaire figurent également dans la liste.

La liste des agglomérations concernées est la suivante : Ajaccio, Annecy, Arles, Bastia, Bayonne, Beauvais, Bordeaux, Draguignan, Fréjus, Genève-Annemasse, Grenoble, La Rochelle, La Teste de Buch-Arcachon, Lille, Lyon, Marseille-Aix-en-Provence, Menton-Monaco, Meaux, Montpellier, Nantes, Nice, Paris, Saint-Nazaire, Sète, Strasbourg, Thonon-les-Bains, Toulon, Toulouse.
