What scale for your taxes?
The scale is used to calculate your tax.

This family quotient corresponds to the taxable income divided by the number of shares, determined according to your situation and the number of people in your tax household.

Up to €10,777
From 10,778 euros to 27,478 euros
From €27,479 to €78,570
From €78,571 to €168,994
Withholding tax: towards an individualized rate by default?
With the withholding tax, it is possible to customize its rate, calculated from the last tax return.
In a home, the personalized rate takes into account “
all of your income, your situation and your family expenses
” indicates the Ministry of the Economy.
This rate is the same for each spouse and is chosen by default.
It is therefore possible to choose an individualized rate, calculated in relation to the income of both spouses, in order to take into account any differences in income.
