[Mis à jour le 2 mars 2023 à 09h26] There is now less than a month left to claim the €100 inflation bonus. This device concerns no less than 10 million modest French people who use their vehicles to get to work. Make a request, it couldn’t be easier, it all happens online. You only need to fill out one form and the rest, the whole process is automated. Access to it requires meeting certain income conditions (see below), and the deadline for making a request is set for the end of March 2023. Also, note that oil major Total offers price caps from 1 March 2023 on all fuels except Diesel Excellium and Unleaded 98 until the end of the year. To take advantage of the new fuel allowance for 2023 it is necessary to complete a form on the tax website from 16 January 2023 which contains three elements: your tax number your car registration number and the registration number of the car you use Sworn Declaration of Vehicle to Work If you do not have access to the online form, you can apply by calling 0.806.000.229, Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 7pm, or at the nearest tax office. This “fuel aid” will reach the poorest 50% of French households, who need a car to get to work. About 10 million people. Owners of two-wheelers will also be able to benefit, as will the self-employed and public servants. Electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids will also be part of the plan. The allowance is paid per person, not per family. Each member of a modest couple who uses a vehicle to travel to work receives assistance of €100. Thus, a couple can benefit from a fuel aid of 200 euros in 2023. To qualify for this assistance, it is necessary to prove that the 2021 reference tax income per share is less than or equal to EUR 14,700. To find out if you are eligible, here are the income limits set by the government to determine beneficiaries of this special assistance: < EUR 1,314 net per month for a single person < EUR 3,285 net per month for a couple with children < EUR 3,285 for a person with two children Singles < EUR 3,285 net per month Couples with two children < EUR 3,941 net per month Couples with three children < EUR 5,255 net per month However, for those of you who have already applied, it is possible that you still have not received 100 EUR fuel bonus. In fact, some problems have been reported to tax authorities. Firstly, the period to get the 100 EUR transfer will be extended. An average of 10 to 14 days, compared to the original plan of 8 to 10 days. Also, some two-wheelers registered in the AB-123-C form cause problems, especially if they were registered before 2009 (there is no obligation to have them re-registered). Try filling in the form again in a few days, and everything should be normal when you drive this kind of car to work. Finally, company vehicles purchased by individuals for personal use pose a problem because they do not qualify for the fuel subsidy system. However, you are eligible if you buy what is known as a "two-seater company car." In this regard, the form will also be improved during the week so that you can make your request correctly. Until 2023, the amount of the fuel allowance is 100 euros. This can reach €200 if two members of a working couple use their vehicle to go to their place of work. For someone who drives 12,000 kilometers a year (ie the average Frenchman), this means an average savings of 10 cents per liter of fuel. Applications for the new fuel allowance worth €100 start on 16 January 2023 and must be applied by the deadline. In fact, if you are one of the beneficiaries, you have until the end of March 2023 to show up by completing the online application form.
