The laws for being treated as a resident of France for tax purposes are four tests.

1 Main Residence

2Place of Abode

3Principal Activity

4Most Substantial assests


France requires that you follow a 183 day stay in the country not 186 days.


If a person is a resident of France, they are taxed on Worldwide income but there are provisions against Double Taxation.
