2% Social Levy & Other Additional Levies

Social Levy and Other Additional LeviesIndividuals domiciled in France for tax purposes are liable to a 2% social levy, introduced in 1998, on income from personal assets and investment income. The proceeds are allocated to the old-age solidarity fund, the national retirement pension fund and the pension reserve fund.

An additional 0.3% levy on income from personal assets and investment income, allocated to the national solidarity fund for autonomy (CNSA), was introduced in 2004.

Act 2008-1249 of 1 December 2008 generalising the earned-income supplement and reforming integration policies introduced a new 1.1% additional contribution to the 2% social levy on income from personal assets and investment income, intended to fund the earned-income supplement (revenu de solidarité active, RSA).

The 1.1% additional contribution on income from personal assets applies to the taxation of income received in 2008 and subsequent years and the 1.1% additional contribution on investment income applies as of 1 January 2009.

The base of and collection methods for the 2% levy and the 0.3% and 1.1% additional contributions are similar to those for the CSG relating to the same income (see Section I above).

The 2% levy and the 0.3% and 1.1% additional contributions are not deductible from the income tax base.
