Does this concern you ?

You could claim the refund of CSG CRDS and other social security contributions if you have been taxed in France, but are affiliated to a social security system of another EU member state or Switzerland.

More precisely, it is the case for the cross-borders commuters living in France but working in another EU member state or Switzerland.

It is similar for non residents living outside France, working in another state of EU or Switzerland, but having earned income in France (rent or capital gains) subject to social levies.

WHY THESE REQUIREMENTS ?

YES, IF YOU ARE A NON-RESIDENT :

    • You work or live in a EU member state or in Switzerland and are affiliated to the social security system of this country
    • You earned income in France

 

YES, IF YOU ARE A CROSS-BORDER COMMUTER :

  • You live in France
  • You work or have worked in one of the EU member states or Switzerland and are subject to the social security system of this country
remboursement de la CSG et CRDS

How much can you recover ?

You can obtain the refund of the CSG, CRDS and other social security contributions levied on your capital revenues at the following rate :

  • 15,5% for social contributions paid in 2016 and 2017
  • 17,2% for social contributions paid from the 1st of January 2018

For example: you sold a property in 2018 and your capital gain is 100.000 Euros, you can be refunded 17.200 € from the social contribution paid, 15,000 € if the sale took place in 2016 and 2017.

ALL THE AMOUNTS AND CAPITAL REVENUES CONCERNED

What are the delays to act ?

It is urgent to act for the capital revenues gained in 2016 and the other capital income gained in 2015 (cf. 2016 income tax notice) before the 31st of December 2018.

After this deadline, it will be too late to initiate an action for reimbursement, even if a final legal decision on the non-compliance of the fiscal system occurs after this date.

CHECK ALL THE DELAYS TO ACT

LEGAL BASIS OF THIS ACTION ?

Your right to obtain a reimbursement has been confirmed by the French justice by a decision of the Administrative Court of Appeal dated 31st May 2018 !

This favorable decision is the outcome of a very long legal battle lead against France and is fully based on European community law which has a higher authority than French law:

In February 2015, France is condemned and starts refunding taxpayers

Since the 1st January 2016, the capital revenues are taxed again ! (French State shell game)

In 2017, many appeals to challenge the new tax system and obtain the reimbursement of the CSG and CRDS and other social security contributions are launched and were given a successful outcome by the judgment of the Administrative Court of Appeal of 31st May 2018.

In 2019, by a decision of April 16th, the Conseil d’Etat, the highest French administrative court, has definitively established a right to reimbursement.
