Tax deduction

Whatever your situation, you can benefit from a tax deduction corresponding to 50% of the cost of the service, up to the ceiling set annually by the tax services (€ 12,000 / year). The ceiling is increased for disabled people (MDPH). We establish the annual certificates so that you can declare your tax deduction.

Certain services give rise to the right to the tax advantage within specific limits:

  • small do-it-yourself services known as “all-hands”: € 500 / year,

  • computer and Internet assistance at home: € 3,000 / year;

  • small gardening work: € 5,000 / year.

Examples of tax cuts

A family whose couple works and pays € 1,000 in taxes calls on AAS Amicale Assistance service for a cleaning / ironing service, at home for 3 hours per week, at a cost of € 2,755 per year. 
This family will have a tax deduction of 50% or 1378 €, it will therefore no longer pay taxes and will even be reimbursed by Public Finances the sum of 378 € (2755/2 - 1000).

A family that pays € 4,000 in taxes, and calls on Service à Dom 'for its household (at a cost of € 5,000 per year), and for the maintenance of its garden (at a cost of € 2,500 per year). This family will then be able to deduct from its taxes the sum of € 3,750 and will only pay € 250 in taxes ((5,000 + 2,500) / 2-4,000).

What the law says:

For expenses incurred during the year, the tax reduction is equal to 50% of the amount of expenses actually incurred, withheld within the limit of an annual ceiling of € 12,000.
This ceiling is increased by € 1,500:

per dependent child

for each member of the tax household aged 65 and over.

However, the ceiling increased by these increases may not exceed € 15,000.
The ceiling is raised to € 20,000:

if at least one of the members of the tax household holds an 80% invalidity card or a 3rd category invalidity pension

or if one of the dependent children is entitled to the additional special education allowance.
