Forte pression fiscale sur les revenus immobiliers
The National Union of Immovable Property (UNPI) gave a press conference on March 13, 2012 on the subject of the very high tax burden that applies to real estate income , in order to attract the attention of candidates for the presidential election on this subject.
The press kit includes many quantified examples which show that the taxation weighing on real estate income is much higher than that on employee or capital income (shares, dividends, etc.).
We see that depending on the marginal tax bracket of a taxpayer, if we add social security contributions, various taxes and levies weighing on real estate or even wealth tax , profitability is sometimes 0%, and we even in the most extreme cases happens to have situations where the taxpayer pays more taxes than he pockets income !

Quantified example: Taxpayer subject to income tax at the rate of 30%, rents collected of € 12,000 per year, € 4,800 in charges (management and insurance costs, goncière tax, works, condominium charges)
– Taxable property income : € 7,200 (12,000 – 4800)
– IR 30%: € 2,160
– Social security contributions (15.5%): € 1,116
– Total taxes: € 3,276
Or an annual net income of € 3,924 (7200 – 3276), taxes representing 46% of taxable property income.
But what is even more obvious is that income from real estate is taxed more than income from work (salaries) or income from movable property (dividends, etc.) .
Thus, for € 20,000 of income (IR at 30%):
– net income in the case of real estate income: € 6,540 or 32.70%
– net income in the case of salary: € 9,100 or 45.50%
– net income in the case of income from movable property: € 13,597, i.e. 67.99%
