The French government wants to end the total exemption from social security contributions on home work for people over the age of 70, says Sunday, September 22 the newspaper Les Echos.
As part of the 2020 finance bill, the government expects to make 310 million euros in savings for the coming year and 360 million in the following years.
An unfortunate measure for some families
Today, people over 70 are exempt from social security contributions on home-based jobs. Senior citizens recognized as dependent or disabled should now benefit from this privilege. However, this measure can not go unnoticed by families who have already mobilized against the under-indexation of pensions and the increase in the CSG of retirees.
For its part, the government explains that this decision is essential because it would better target the exemptions: "Give more money to retirees who pay the wealth tax to pay their gardener than a single mother to pay the nanny is totally unfair and is the current system, "says a source close to the record cited by the newspaper.
According to Les Echos, however, the executive would not have considered keeping the total exemption for low-income seniors over 70 years old. The number of people who would lose this advantage under this bill remains unknown.
