Who paid wealth tax this year? On average, 175,980 households paid the real estate wealth tax, or IFI, the successor to the ISF, refocused on land properties only since 2018. They paid 11,100 euros in IFI.

The real estate wealth tax is a tax indexed on real estate assets. It replaced the solidarity tax on wealth in 2018, recalls the Money Vox site.

The famous ISF. You are subject to real estate wealth tax if the net value of your real estate assets exceeds €1,300,000. This includes all property and real estate rights held directly and indirectly as of January 1, says an article in the Voix du Nord.

According to figures relayed by Le Figaro, last year, nearly 176,000 households had to pay the real estate wealth tax (IFI), an increase of more than 7% compared to 2022.

This clear increase explains the 7.1% increase in wealth declared to the IFI (434 billion in 2023) because the average wealth per taxable household has remained stable, according to figures published a few days ago by the Management General Public Finances (DGFIP).

The appearance of new taxable households: “is partly linked to the fact that the IFI tax threshold has not increased in a context of rising real estate prices”, develops the DGFIP. The number of new households entering the IFI in 2023 (29,700) far exceeded that of exits (17,600).

But where do these “rich homeowners” pay the most? In which cities and towns is the average IFI paid highest? Here is the top 25 drawn up by the specialized site MoneyVox based on 2023 statistics from the General Directorate of Public Finances (DGFiP).

Disappearing from the top 25 of the highest average IFI are cities like Rennes, Colmar, Olivet, Castelnau-le-Lez or Brest, which fall a little further in this ranking. Rennes, 25th last year, is now in 42nd place, with an average IFI very slightly below 11,000 euros, and Colmar in 27th place for an average IFI of 11,565 euros, points out the Money Vox site .
