Many taxpayers will receive a letter from the Directorate General of Public Finance, notifying them whether they have paid too much or too little tax. Nearly 10 million French people will have to go back to the cashier.

The cleaver will fall. Like every year since the introduction of withholding tax in 2019, the French will soon receive their official tax return for the year 2022. In this letter that you will receive between July 24 and August 22, it is likely that the Directorate General of Public Finances will ask you for a supplement on your tax or, conversely, tell you that you will be subject to a refund.
