The online reporting service (impots.gouv.fr) opens on April 20th.

Taxpayers who have reported their 2018 income in paper format will receive the 2019 forms between April 20th and mid-May.

Tax households that have been taxed, last year, only on income pre-filled by the administration and which did not report any change in circumstances (address, family status or creation of a deposit at source) in 2019 will be eligible for the tacit reporting of their 2019 income (Law 2019-1479 of 28-12-2019 art. 155). For this purpose, they will receive an e-mail (2018 income declared online) or postal (2018 income declared by "paper") informing them of the steps to be taken.
