I forgot to declare 2021 income in my online tax return

Reader Question: I FORGOT to report some income I earned from selling online in 2021 – is it too late to change the online report I made?

NO, IT is not too late but make sure it is declarable first.

If it was revenue from a French online platform and the revenue was €3,000 or more or there were more than 20 sales, this would generally have been brought to your attention as part of of your statement. Presumably, that was not the case.

If you were selling your own used items, in most cases the product is not reportable. However, the product is reportable if you manufactured or purchased items for resale.

To correct an online return after receiving your income tax return (notice), which will now be the case, a service is available via your personal space on impots.gouv.fr. Click on Access the online correction to do this. You will be able to access your declaration again and make the necessary additions.

You must then click to sign the declaration as usual.

An estimate of the tax to be paid will be provided at the end.

A new notice proof of additional tax payable, if any, should be provided by the tax office within a few weeks.

Usually, as long as the initial return was made on time, you will not be subject to a late payment fine, but an additional fee may be subject to interest, beginning July 1.

Persons who have not made a declaration online must report any correction to the tax authorities by making a complaint by sending a letter or private message online, or by reporting the problem in person or by phone.
