Taxes in france

2nd try: Hi, I live in France and was asked to attend the local tax office.
1 I am retired, and moved to France 2003
2 I have state pension and private pension. I have always paid my taxes in the UK.
2. French tax office now insist that I have to pay French tax as I live in France.
3.I contacted the HMRC and they say it is so. But it has taken them all these years, to now say I must pay them instead.
4. Very worried, as I am concerned that should the euro change, which has been doing for sometime, I could lose out, and find that I am not able to live in France as costs would sore,
5 So have been considering selling my house here and moving back to the Uk. not a happy thought. as I have been happy here. but as it looks like I will have to pay them.
6. I cannot accept that this is something that I will have to do, as I have never worked in France, and never asked for a penny in the UK or France for any help. I have managed.
7.It has taken me along time to be in a position that I can live a decent life here in France. and no worries. I have not had a lot of sleep worrying about it, as I can see that the French Tax could be higher then the UK. so my income would be reduced.
8. also I asked them what happens when you receive sometimes on a yearly basis and increase in your pension and allowances from Uk. How do they deal with that. they do not deal with it on a yearly basis. so I can imagine, that should my pension rise, a bill from the tax office
eventually. would request more monies.
9. I have been to this office twice, with information, there attitude was and is very aggressive, and they are not prepared to explain, and
10. When arriving I could not believe that they were not prepared at all. everything that was mention they had to ask others and look it up. Shabby and lack of thought, as they did insist that I get al my information.
Sorry to bleet but I really am so worried about this. any suggestions, apart from returning to the UK
many thanks Anne.
