Occitanie town asks residents to stop paying tax

France 3/Scoop, Jul 20

Le Perthus, a small commune in the Pyrénées-Orientales, voted to “bring the taxe d’habitation and the taxe foncière to zero euros” after declaring that they had enough money in the bank.

In 2017, the small commune of 580 residents had an operational surplus of €1.1m, and an investment surplus of €60,500, and they couldn’t reach an agreement about how to spend the money.

As a result the council has voted to suspend taxes for now, until they can reach an agreement about how to spend it. They are also debating whether to reduce the annual amount of tax.
