2024 tax declaration: deadlines, new features and how to declare from the iPhone

Spring is here. If it is synonymous with floral blooms, colorful trees, birdsong and lilies of the valley, in France it is also associated with annual tax return. Indeed, every year around the end of May and the beginning of June, French men and women must complete and send their income tax return for the previous year, by mail or directly to the government website dedicated to this:

But did you know that it is also possible to make your declaration from the iPhone ? We will explain how to you below, after reminding you of the deadlines to respect to validate your declaration and the penalties that you incur if you are late.


The income tax declaration is compulsory for all French taxpayers living in France or abroad. It is therefore a question for anyone concerned to carry out this process before a deadline, generally taking place towards the end of May or the beginning of June.

This year has a particularity: online declaration is now mandatory for homes with an internet connection. However, it is still possible to make your declaration on paper, provided that the household does not have an internet connection. In this case, the deadline is brought forward compared to that of the online declaration.

There is also a date from which declaration is possible. This year it is Thursday April 11. From that day, you will therefore be able to declare your 2023 income.

Below, you will find the deadlines corresponding to your department and informing you until when you can complete this process.

Deadlines for declaring your 2023 income

The deadline for filing taxes online depends on your department of residence:

  • Departments from 01 to 19: until May 23, 2024 11:59 p.m.
  • Departments from 2A to 54: until May 30, 2024 11:59 p.m.
  • Departments from 55 to 976: until June 6, 2024 at 11:59 p.m.

If you declare your taxes on paper, you must send the declaration before May 20, 2024, postmarked as proof.

What is the penalty for not meeting the deadline?

If you file your 2024 taxes late, they will be increased according to the following scale:

  • +10% in case of deposit in the absence of formal notice
  • +20% if filed within 30 days of formal notice
  • +40% in the event of filing beyond 30 days following formal notice

In addition, interest is applied per month of delay amounting to 0.20%. In the event of a delay of 5 months, for example, interest reaches 1%.

Please note that if you fail to meet the deadline, your tax is increased by the following amount: increase + interest.

How to declare from the iPhone?

The government provides a mobile application, available on iOS, which allows you to file your taxes. But the maneuver is possible only if you have activated automatic declaration in the past. The application is therefore only used to verify this automatic declaration. Here’s how to do it:

Impots.gouv iPhone App


  • Identify yourself with FranceConnect or by entering your tax number (to be found on an old declaration, for example) and your account password
App Impots.gouv iPhone identificationApp Impots.gouv iPhone identification


  • Press “Automatic declaration” (accessible from April 11) and check the declaration before validating

You have understood, it is impossible to complete a declaration from scratch via the Impots.gouv app. This only allows automatic declarations to be validated, an option which may still concern nearly 11 million eligible households.

What to do once the declaration has been sent?

The tax administration takes advantage of the summer to carry out all the checks concerning your declaration. This process results in one of three outcomes depending on your case:

  • You paid the correct amount of taxes: you have peace of mind until next year
  • You paid too much tax: you will be refunded the overpayment before the end of August
  • You haven’t paid enough taxes: the missing amount can be paid from September, in one go if it is less than €300 or in 4 installments, from September to December, if it is greater than €300

Don’t forget: see you on April 12, the date from which you can file your income tax declaration.
