For those who are not always fans of dematerialization, they only have a few hours left to fill out and send their paper tax return to the tax authorities. They have until Monday 23:59, to put it in a mailbox, "the postmark being authentic".

Launched on April 13, the 2023 tax return campaign ends on May 25 for telefilers residing in departments numbered 1 to 19, June 1 for those living in a department numbered 20 to 54 and June 8 for other taxpayers.

Some new measures to know

Among the main novelties of the 2023 tax return campaign are the exemption of tips and the increase of the exemption limit for overtime. Concretely, tips received in 2022 by employees in contact with customers "are exempt from income tax and social contributions and contributions", provided that the remuneration of the taxpayer concerned does not exceed 1.6 Smic, details the DGFiP in a brochure published on its website.

Other novelties, "the annual ceiling of overtime or additional exempt hours is increased from 5,000 euros to 7,500 euros as of January 1, 2022" and "the ceiling of the tax credit for childcare expenses for children under six years is increased from 2,300 euros to 3,500 euros per child," says the DGFiP. From 2022, households are also exempt from paying the contribution to public broadcasting, the "fee" that until now cost them 138 euros per year.

Measures to account for inflation

  • To account for inflation, which returned to levels not seen since the 2022s in 1980, the government raised the income tax scale by 5.4%. As a result, the income of taxpayers who received less than €10,777 in 2022 will not be taxed and income between €10,777 and €27,478 will be taxed at 11%.
  • The tax rate increases to 30% for income between 27,478 and 78,570 euros, to 41% for income below 168,994 euros and to 45% for income above this amount.
