Happy New Year! I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous year in 2023! I hope you all had a nice Christmas. We made it to Disneyland in spite of the train strikes in France and then onto the UK for our first British Christmas since 2018! It was good festive fun!
As from 15th January 2023, the tax office will pay you a 60% advance on some tax credits and tax reductions. These include the tax credits/reductions for charitable donations, home help costs and childcare costs. This will be 60% of the amount declared in 2022.
In my last Ezine, I mentioned the fuel allowance. Now, since 22 December 2022, there is an allowance of between 50 and 200 euros for those using logs or pellets to heat their homes. This is for people with less than 2260 euros income per month for a single person or 4750 euros for a couple with 2 children. You will need to request this payment by going to this website https://chequeenergie.gouv.fr/beneficiaire/eligibilite.
