I live in France but I am not French and I have difficulties understanding how to declare capital gain/loss from stock investements. I hope I can find some French people who also speak English to help me a bit.
In France, we need to declare and pay 30% (flat tax) for capital gains (plus values) and 30% for the dividends.
- For the dividends , when we receive them, 15% US tax has already been deducted .
- So in theory, France should take only 15% (15% US + 15% French = 30%) tax for the dividends.
Capital gain (“plus vlaues”):
- For the capital gain , if we sell, we get the full amount (without any tax deducted).
- So in theory, France should take 30% tax for the capital gain.
Let’s assume that we keep track of all these capital gains and Dividends and that we have the annual sum of capital gains and Dividends.
**My question is:
How exactly do I declare these annual values? I know that we need to fill the 2042 and 2047 formulaires. But in what lines we put what?**
Can trading212 provide us with the IFU?
I would deeply appreciate any help. @thierryb180381 I tag you in case you have help me.
