Default Avis d'Impot 2019

I am a US CPA living in France and have a problem with my tax filing every year since I moved here 10 years ago. Today I received my Avis d'Impot and the tax is normally a few hundred dollars and this year it is several thousand euros. My income remains relatively the same every year. In comparing this years to last years I find a new line item. My entire income is earned in the US except for a rental property in france that had a gross income of 495. The "Impot avant reductions d'impot" is entirely reduced to zero by the "Total des reductions d'impot". There is however a plus amount below titled "Impot proportionnel" of 1.140. That number is unknown to me. This has also effected my Prelevements Sociaux which a much reduced "Credit d'impot modern recouvrement.
Any clue what happened? I file electronically and it drives me crazy that the program does not figure the tax so there might be a give-a-way that an error has been made.

Thank you.

If you file online there is a messaging service, you could ask them perhaps.
As far as the "Impot proportionnel" of 1.140€.” isn’t that the Euro/USD rate of exchange?
FWIW, my tax bill has gained quite a bit and for the moment I don’t know why.

Thanks for the reply but you must file your return in Euros. They do not do the calculation. My problem is my French is VERY limited and especially technical stuff either on line or over the telephone is almost impossible.

I have to say I sympathise with you regarding the language. It might be a whole lot easier to go to an accountant that speaks good English and is competent in overseas income.
I know the returns are filed in euros, the 1.140€ in question, did you mean 1,140€? Punctuation is different in France as you probably know but easily catches some out.

[I assumed the OP was writing in the English/US format.]

Oh, I was going to suggest (for future reference) to get a copy of ClickImpot to do your taxes, since that at least generates a "pro forma" Avis d'Imposition so you can see how your various choices affects your end result. But the software is exclusively in French so could be a little tricky to use.

Re the 1.140 - that's not the exchange rate, since the exchange rate would have a comma rather than a period to designate the decimal.

I tried checking our pro forma avis to see if I could figure out what that is - obviously we haven't gotten our avis yet - but our tax declaration didn't generate a "Impot proportionnelle" line on the avis.

One possibility - you mention that "My entire income is earned in the US except for a rental property in france." It's not always just a matter of where the income is "earned" but rather the specific type of income involved. And, as some of our members have found out "the hard way" exactly how you report the income both on the basic form (2042) and on the form for foreign source income (2047).

Then, to add to the "fun" this year, with the changeover to "prelevement la source" there are all sorts of strange line items appearing for the first (and potentially only) time on this year's avis.

Will continue to watch out for any information on this item.
