In recent weeks, when there was talk of property tax, it was always to mention bad news linked to its surge across France. Going against this very real trend, the energy renovation brand Effy has chosen to unveil a list of 53 municipalities where individuals can benefit from a significant reduction in these local taxes following thermal renovation work. According to the company’s calculations, this tax boost would result in an average saving of €1,275.
Few big cities
Concretely, this is a tax incentive proposed at the national level that communities can choose to put in place until October 1, 2023 (for application on January 1, 2024) to encourage their residents to launch energy performance works housing. The non-exhaustive list established by Effy (based on information referenced on the sites of departmental housing information agencies or on the sites of municipalities: deliberation in municipal council, announcement, etc.) includes a good number of small municipalities but also large cities such as Nantes, Chambéry, Caen and even Paris. But it is true that the system is not easy to apply in the capital, for example.
The system is aimed at owners of housing completed before 1989 and offers them partial or total exemption from property tax for 3 years. To qualify, you must undertake at least €10,000 including tax of work (excluding labor and before integration of energy renovation aid) per dwelling during the year preceding the first year of application of the exoneration. If the expenses are spread over the 3 years preceding the application of the exemption, the amount per accommodation must exceed €15,000 including tax (€5,000 per year).
As for the type of eligible work, this involves thermal insulation, installation of windows or heating using renewable energies (wood, thermal solar panels, air-water and geothermal heat pump). But also the installation of a renewable domestic hot water production system, the installation of a double-flow VMC, the carrying out of an energy audit as well as the connection to a heating and/or cold network . This work must then meet the required energy performance criteria. According to Effy’s calculations, if this system were applied in all cities in France, we could (in the event of a 50% exemption) earn on average (over 3 years) €1,080 in Paris, €1,629 in Marseille , €1532 in Grenoble or €1188 in Lille, €1286 in ichet, €954 in Charleville-Mézières.
