French Wealth Tax Solicitors

French wealth tax may be payable on immovable assets in France, such as a villa or a chalet. It is known as Impȏt sur la fortune Immobilière or IFI. The IFI tax threshold is €1,300,000, applicable to the net value of immovable property in France. 

It applies to non-French residents who own a second home in France, either directly or indirectly through a Société Civile Immobilière (S.C.I).
