In France, do you pay capital gains tax on property you sell?

Cannes France Clock Tower

This is a very complicated French legal and tax question. The rules on capital gains have changed 3 times in the two years so it is best to check with an English speaking French tax adviser or French notary in France who knows the French real estate rules before making a decision. Remember to share all the details about where you have residency and nationality since this may change your situation.
