A "fire unit" will be set up within a week with the key to tax aid for individuals, businesses and communities affected this summer by the fires, announced Monday the Minister of Public Accounts Gabriel Attal in an interview with several regional daily press titles such as Dauphiné Libéré, Sud Ouest and Le Télégramme.

“We want to give a little oxygen to all those who have suffered directly from the fires”, declared the minister in the columns of the regional daily, via “devices to support individuals, businesses and communities affected”.

In order to “limit the economic and financial consequences that the French people concerned will have to suffer”, Gabriel Attal and the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire have decided to set up “by next week, a fire unit at the direction of the public finances, in conjunction with the Urssaf”, which will be responsible for setting up “a kind of tax buffer”.

For individuals who have seen their property permanently affected, Gabriel Attal already mentions “mainly three measures”: an exceptional deadline for levying income tax, a suspension of local taxes (property tax and housing tax ) concerning damaged housing and a potential downward revision of rental values, “depending on the depreciation of the property”.
