This is the final stretch for your 2024 tax return. But be careful to fill out line 1G correctly if you are in a very specific situation, because the penalty is heavy in the event of an error.

Filing your income tax can be a real headache. This year, some had to complete it before May 21. Check that you are not one of them because heavy interest and surcharges may be requested in the event of delay. But if French people benefit from a reduction (discover the procedure to follow to pay less after 65 years), it is still necessary be careful when filling out a particular line.

As recalled -.fr, a change has occurred, and not everyone is aware of it. Several professions can in fact benefit from a tax reduction to move their tax household to the lower level and owe less tax. But you shouldn’t do your calculations haphazardly. The people concerned are journalists, fishermen and childminders.

Line 1G to fill out correctly on your 2024 tax return

Around 500,000 French people are entitled to a reduction in their overall annual income and have been for a long time. But since the 2022 tax campaign, they no longer have to go about their income tax return in the same way. Previously, the citizens concerned had to declare their tax allowance and then calculate it by subtracting it.

Gold, you now only need to specify your reduction in the box on line 1G, by clicking on the pencil positioned next to their annual income. This is then systematically calculated. So you don’t have to do it anymore. If you do the subtraction yourself, this amounts to granting you twice your tax relief and distorting the amount you declare.

What do you risk if you make a mistake?

To avoid this tax fraud, which can be worth a fine of 500,000 euros and 5 years in prison, so just apply your reduction once on line 1G. If the tax authorities believe that you wanted to deceive them, you may also receive an increase in your tax. The latter can go up to 80%.

Also pay attention to the possibility of the administration verifying your declarations from past years. They can go back up to six years to investigate whether you have committed fraud. Although the right to make mistakes exists, you must prove your good faith, and this is not easy. As a reminder, the 2024 tax declaration, on 2023 income, must be filed before May 21 for paper versions. For digital versions, you have until May 23 for departments 0 to 19, until May 30 for departments 20 to 54 (including the two from Corsica) and until June 6 for departments from 55 to 974/976.
