Taxation in France | Memorandum concerning the annual internal taxation certificate and the declaration of income for 2016

You are reminded that the Organization levies an internal tax on the financial and family benefits it pays to the members of the personnel (see Chapter V, Section 2 of the Staff Rules and Regulations) and that the members of the personnel are exempt from national taxation on salaries and emoluments paid by CERN.

The Organization would like to remind members of the personnel that they must comply with the national legislation applicable to them, in particular for any other income they may receive (cf. Article S V 2.02 of the Staff Rules).

I - Annual internal taxation certificate for 2016

The annual certificate of internal taxation for 2016, issued by the Finance, and Administration Processes Department, is available since 21 February 2017. It is intended exclusively for the tax authorities.

  1. If you are currently a member of the CERN personnel you received an e-mail containing a link to your annual certificate, which you can print out if necessary.
  2. If you are no longer a member of the CERN personnel or are unable to access your annual certificate as indicated above, you will find information explaining how to obtain one here

In case of difficulty in obtaining your annual certificate, send an e-mail explaining the problem to service-desk@cern.ch.
