Property owners who spend less than 184 days a year in France and do not pay income taxes in France are considered “non-resident.”
Non-resident owners are expected to:
- pay property taxes (“taxe foncière”)
- pay occupancy taxes (“taxe d’habitation”), unless you have a long-term renter in the property, in which case this tax is their responsibility
- pay income tax on any income deriving from activities in France (including rental income from the property)
