Default Capital Gains Tax

Looking for some advice about Capital Gains Tax with regards to countries which have a double taxation treaty with France.

My scenario is that I have property in Hungary which I am considering selling. It will be subject to Capital Gains but the question is will I pay this in France or Hungary?

Any help appreciated - thanks.

I don't know the treaty between France and Hungary, but the general rule in international taxation seems to be that you pay the capital gains to the country in which the property is located.

But because of the way the French tax system works, you then declare the capital gain as part of your "worldwide" income on your French tax form and on the separate "foreign source income" form, indicating where it is from and the tax treatment to avoid double taxation. (For France there are a couple of ways to handle this, depending on the type of income.)
Cheers,
Bev
