Where can I find the full English text of the French General Tax Code? I'm not having much luck on line and would appreciate any input. I need this right away (if it even exists).

Tax Code not available in English Dec 31, 2003

Hi Stephanie,

I have never been able to find the Code in English unfortunately. Good luck and let us know if you find it!

I translate a lot of F/E tax documents so you can ask me questions if you like, maybe I can help.

This looks like like a good source, it is the French Embassy in Washington.

there is no such thing Jan 2, 2004

There is no such thing as the translation of the entire tax code in English. Why should there be? I am sure pieces of it have been translated but generally speaking, these kinds of legislation are not found translated in toto.

Anyway, that's my experience.

Why indeed? Jan 2, 2004

So far there doesn't appear to be an English version - if there is one, I'm guessing it's been commissioned (and is being held tightly) by a US multinational somewhere. Anyway, it was worth a try; now I feel slightly more justified in tackling the tiny print.
Thanks for all your suggestions.

The only service I know that provided an (almost full) translation of the French General Tax Code was Checkpoint (a service by Thompson Reuters).... I am new to international tax so I don't really have any other resources besides plugging in paragraphs into translation services online for a rough estimate of what it's saying.
