Taxes: 10.7 million households still owe an average of 2,103 euros to the tax authorities


According to the results of the 2022 declaration campaign, the taxpayers concerned owe a total of 22.5 billion euros in taxes, due to

While the first tax notices are beginning to arrive in mailboxes or, more often, online on the special spaces of the site, the Directorate General of Public Finance is taking stock of the 2022 tax return campaign. And gives the details of the sums that the tax authorities must refund or deduct from taxpayers to correct the differences observed between the withholding at source made in 2021 and the tax actually due.

If this has not already been done on July 21, 13.7 million tax households will be refunded this Tuesday August 2 a total of 11.5 billion euros.

That is an average of 840 euros per household.

The tax households concerned are in two cases.

First, there are those who made expenses in 2021 giving rise to tax reductions and credits (employment of an employee at home, childcare, etc.).

If these costs recur from one year to the next, the DGFiP will pay you the balance of these benefits taking into account the 60% advance paid in January.

If you made these expenses for the first time in 2021, all the tax reductions and credits to which you are entitled will be paid to you this summer.

The other situation that gives rise to a refund is that of a withholding tax that is too high throughout the year in relation to the final amount of tax.

Nearly 90% of households report online or automatically

Conversely, bad news for 10.7 million households that will have to checkout.

The total balance to be paid amounts to 22.5 billion euros, or 2,103 euros per household on average, the withholding tax not having been significant enough.

“This can be explained, for example, if your income increased last year or if you benefited from too large an advance of tax reductions or credits in January 2022”, specifies the DGFiP.

The households concerned will be sampled from September.

In one go, on September 26, if the sum does not exceed 300 euros.

Otherwise, the payment will be spread over four installments scheduled at the end of September, October, November and December.

The DGFiP also reveals a number of online declarants which is increasing again this year, by 2.7%, to reach 23.9 million people.

If we add the 10.8 million households that declared their income for 2021 automatically, after a simple check of the pre-filled data, this represents a total of 34.5 million tax households (i.e. 88.6% ) who carried out this process in a dematerialized way.
