Re: No house . . . but continued taxes d'hab and foncière !

As with all these questions one can only quote anecdotes of one's own experience, and generalisations  aren't of much use.
That said I have found that the internal messaging service
'ma messagerie sécurisée' in
https://cfspart.impots.gouv.fr/gaia2-zu-mapi/

more effective than an email to the address on the tax form
It was this system that finally resolved my problem above.

I certainly have relied on email/internal messages for years for tax  affairs, banking, contact with Directe Energie, my Mutuelle  etc...

My experience of using email to sort out a ta d’hab. problem with the tax office was excellent, swift replies and immediate explanation and action.
But I would not want to extrapolate a general rule from this at all, Richard.
Ticking over, just about.

Re: No house . . . but continued taxes d'hab and foncière !

Well, quelle surprise!
I just received letters from both taxe d'hab and taxe fonc saying they are going to reimburse me for the Jan and Feb payments taken in error. 200 euros - enough for me to buy you all a drink perhaps, as long as you're fairly abstemious!

I have no idea whether it was my letter of 31 Jan that produced this result, or whether it would have slowly sorted itself out with no prompting from me. I did try and phone them the other day, but of course it was the wrong day or the wrong time.

I've emailed our tax office and they replied straight away.
But we have to pay to the end of the year because we sold in Feb.. Though I think we might be exempt for Tax Hab.
Which means keeping our account open and topped up at CA.

Hmm? I thought that your notaire would have apportioned the Fonciere charge between yourselves and your purchaser. ie 2 / 12 for you and 10 / 12 for your purchaser. That principal has always been used whenever we have bought/sold properties in France.

Cajal is spot on, TF is proportioned;

Pat, if you were liable for TH before, then you will pay from January for the whole year.
