Started in April, the 2023 income tax return campaign will end in a few weeks. This declaration is mandatory for any person over 18 years of age residing in France. People born in 2004 can remain attached to their parents' tax household and therefore do not have to make a declaration, explains the Ministry of Economy on its website.

For French people born between 2001 and 2003, the declaration of income is mandatory but it is possible to remain attached to the parents' tax household. Ditto for people born between 1997 and 2000, only if they are students. For all those born before 1997, students or not, individual declaration is mandatory.

Create your online space

For the first declaration, two hypotheses arise. French people aged 20 and over, attached in 2022 to their parents' tax household, must have received a letter from Public Finances inviting them to create their personal space on the tax website. Those who have not received anything are invited to "request the assignment of a tax number" from the administration in order to create their online account.

The first income tax return must be made online. If this is not possible, it is possible to send a "paper" declaration to the public finance center of his place of residence, says Capital. The first online connection requires having your tax number (13 digits), online access number (7 digits) before choosing a password for future connections.

What should I declare?

All taxable French people must declare the income received for a salaried activity. "If this activity is carried out in parallel with your studies [student job or summer job], you must declare the income received beyond the annual limit of three times the amount of the monthly SMIC," says the tax authorities.

Income received in the context of self-employment must also be declared, as must "allowances and gratuities for internships in companies". Preparatory year allowances, university teacher training institute (IUFM) allowances and study grants for work or research must also be included in the declaration.
