Attention to property taxes- Cass- Civ 1 – 5 December 2018 No.17- 31189

The Court of Cassation, in a ruling dated 5 December 2018, stated that even if an undivided co-owner was not living in the property, he or she was obliged to pay half of the property taxes, the occupancy payment making up for the absence of possession of the said property.

Therefore, when one spouse is allocated possession of the marital home, the other spouse remains liable to pay half of the property taxes.
