The online tax return correction service closes this Wednesday.
Last chance to rectify tax return. Taxpayers have until Wednesday, December 15 to correct online items communicated to the tax authorities in the spring. Income, charges, contribution to public broadcasting, tax reductions or credits, property wealth tax… Almost all of the information can be modified.
Only changes in family status (marriage, PACS, PACS terminations, divorce, death) cannot be made online. In this case, it will be necessary to file a paper declaration at the public finance center with “an explanatory letter requesting that this declaration cancel and replace the online declaration”, indicates the services of Bercy.
For other corrections, however, go to the impots.gouv.fr website (service not available on smartphone or tablet). It will then suffice to correct the information entered in the boxes of the income tax return. Please note that this service is only intended for taxpayers who declared their income online in the spring. Those who have filed a paper declaration must inform their personal tax department by mail or sign a new paper declaration in the event of an error or omission.
Passed December 15, a claim necessary
After correction, a confirmation email will be sent to the taxpayer. The amount of his tax will then be recalculated taking into account the new information communicated and a new tax notice which may lead to an increase or a decrease in the tax will be issued. In the event of an increase, a deadline for payment will be indicated on the new notice. In the event of a drop, the tax authorities will refund the overpayment in the days following receipt of the notice.
After December 15, it will be too late to correct your declaration online. It will then be necessary to submit a complaint to the General Directorate of Public Finances. The taxpayers concerned will have “until December 31, N+2 to do so online from the secure messaging system of their private space” via the section “‘I am reporting an error in the calculation of my tax’, or by mail to their center of public finances”, recalls Bercy.
