French-German tax agreementApril 2015
The French-German Council of Ministers, which met on 31 March 2015 in Berlin, adopted an amendment to the tax agreement between the two countries.
The amendment concerns the specific situation of cross-border workers (currently employed and pensioners) working in Germany but living in France, who are liable to be subject to double taxation. The agreement enables "the taxpayers concerned to no longer be taxed in Germany, in return for which financial compensation will be paid by France". Three German Länder are concerned: Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland.Back to list
