Thierry had a shock when he received the notice of property tax on the built properties : the amount has doubled compared to last year. Without the rate change compared to the previous year. How such an increase can be justified, and what recourse can they use to learn more and to possibly challenge it ?
the increase in property tax-Thierry is probably due to a significant alteration of the cadastral value of your property. If you happened such a mishap, get back on your tax notice and refer to the "cadastral value". A priori, you should notice a significant difference in value. It can be explained in two ways.
transformations that increase the cost of the value of the property
If you have performed the work giving rise to licensing or prior approval, the municipal services have informed the tax administration. If the services of the cadastre believe that the transformations change the value of the property, they proceed to a modification of the estimates made in the past. In principle, you are informed because they often send a request for information asking you to describe the property : number of rooms, facilities, nature and importance of the appendices... But the Administration is right to do so without notifying you.
A re-evaluation of the value of the property
The second possibility is the policy of the services of local taxes which proceed from a random but regular basis to the revaluation of buildings of which the initial value has been established in the early 70's. There also, you would normally have had to be consulted in advance. In the two situations above, you must follow a procedure quite cumbersome to get gain of cause. First of all, you need to ask your center of the property taxes a copy of the calculation sheet of your property (printed 6675-M). It is difficult to understand, but you can make an appointment and ask for explanations.

according to the answers given by the Administration, you will then be able to challenge all or part of the revaluations made. Often, the tax authorities refused to accept any change. It is then necessary to send a claim by registered mail to the head of the tax office, the latter having six months to decide. If you do not get gain of cause, you will need to consider an application to the court and apply to the administrative court within two months of the receipt of the decision of the Administration.
