I OWNED a property in France since 2004 which was sold on March 30, 2016. A few months ago I received a bill for the taxe foncière local property owners’ tax, which I queried and was told I was liable for this and paid. Then I received the bill for taxe d’habitation as well, which left me confused. Am I liable for both, as I understood that if I were the owner of the property on January 1, then I would have to pay one of the bills during that year. C.D.
