Do not believe that the investments bearing the label “tax relief” are the only ones that allow you to pay less tax. The employment of one or more persons among you is without no doubt the easiest way, the least risky and most effective way to significantly reduce the note. You can enjoy it regardless of your age, your health status or your income level, whether you exercise or not a professional activity or you’re already retired.

regardless whether you’re taxable or not, and if this is the case, you are heavily taxed or not. The advantage to individual employers is in fact granted in the form of a tax credit to all households and not only to only the assets (up to the last year, it was granted in the form of a tax reduction for pensioners). Consequence : if you are not taxable, or if your tax is less than the amount of the benefit, the tax authorities will refund the full tax credit in the first, and the difference in the second.
A wide range of services concerned
You can take advantage of you to use one or more persons live or you are passing through a service organization to the person, to your principal residence such as for your secondary residence. It matters little whether one-off help or regular and that you use only a few hours per week or per month.
Finally, contrary to a notion still widely prevalent, this boost in tax is not playing for the cleaning and maintenance of the house, for the employment of a child care home and/or for support services to seniors and people with disabilities. The range of services for entitlement is very broad courses : academic support, private lessons for adults (music, sewing, drawing, foreign languages, gymnastics …), small diy tasks within the limit of 2 hours per event and € 500 per year, small yard work (hedge trimming, brush clearing, etc.) in the limit of 5 000 € per year, computer support within the limit of 3 000 € per year…

The amount of the tax credit is equal to half of your costs (salaries + social charges or paid invoices to the service providers). These expenditures are retained in the limit of a ceiling of 12,000 € per year, plus € 1,500 per dependent child, or member of the household over the age of 65 years, within the limit of 15 000 €. A tax credit of 6,000 € per year for a single person or a couple without children, 6 750 € with a child or when one of the members of the household is over 65 years old and € 7 500 for two children or when both spouses or partners in Pacs have over 65 years of age.
Bonus in the first year
If this is the first year that you employ an employee in a direct – that is to say without the services of a service organization, person, your spending limit is increased from 3 000 €, which brings the maximum advantage to 9 000 €! This ceiling is increased to 20 000 € for the taxpayers disabled or who have care of a disabled person, with no markup possible, or a maximum benefit of $ 10,000 per year. But attention, this amount is taken into account in the “overall ceiling for tax shelters” limited to 10 000 € per year all benefits which may be available to a tax household.
The catch ? With the entry into force of the withholding at the source (NO) in 2019, and year white, in 2018, you will not have tax payable in 2019 on your income in 2018, if you have not received income “streams.”
in Order not to lose the advantage of the tax credit for expenses incurred in 2018, the entire tax credit to which you are entitled will be paid in full in September 2019 (or imputed, if any, on the tax payable on your non-recurring income)

How to pay less tax thanks to donations That cover the expenses ? The financial costs and insurance
And after that ? The amount of this benefit will not be taken into account in the rate of your tax at source. To avoid that this weighing too heavily on your cash flow, the finance law for 2019 provides that you will receive from the month of January, of each year, an advance on the tax credit to which you are entitled. In 2019, it will be equal to 60 % of the amount of the tax credit you received in respect of the taxation of income in 2017 (reported in the spring of 2018) since at this date the inland revenue will not know the amount of your spending to 2018. And if you have not incurred the same expenses in 2018, this advance payment will be regularized in 2019, or even returned … in Short, the device will be more complicated … but still as good !
