French income tax question:I have received "Declaration des revenus et des operations sur valeurs mobilières 2011" from my bank. For some reason this year I have received two of those this year, one for me one for my husband.Both his declaration and my declaration have a number in 2DA field. Do I need to enter sum of both? Just his? Just mine? Pre-filled declaration online only has information about my husband's number.
State/Country relating to question: France
Hello. My specialty is focusing on YOUR Financial needs. Financial Planner/Business Owner for 20 years. CPA,PFS,QFP,GMMA.
Is this a joint account?
Are the amounts the same on both forms?
Shawn,those are two different accounts. The amount is different on both. In previous years, when we both had the same accounts, I had only received one "declaration".
Please note this question is about France as well.
The taxing authorities are taxing BOTH accounts. When you had the same account it mattered little that both names were on them as the end result was the one account. Now that you have several DIFFERENT accounts the sum total must be reported.
I am sorry I did not phrase this correctly. The situation did not change: the accounts are the same, the marital status is the same, amount of money on account is the same, everything is the same as now. Previous year I only received one paper. This year I received two papers.
I confirm that under French taxation rules, you must declare the sum of the amount reported on your two 2561Ter forms received from your bank, in the 2DA file of French income tax return form 2042.
