A new string to the bow of the tobacconists. As of Tuesday, 28 July, the French will have the opportunity to pay the amount of their taxes, of the canteen of their children or the nursery in the offices of tobacco in France, reveals Europe 1. However, all institutions do not offer this option. For the time being, 4 700 tobacconists distributed in 3 700 municipalities will be able to cash out the money. The different offices of tobacco involved in the transaction are distributed a little everywhere in France.

The person wanting to access this service will need to come into the office of tobacco with the invoice sent by the town council via e-mail or letter. The paper presents a QR Code that the retail outlet will need to flash in order to determine the amount to be paid. A partnership has been filed with the French games so that the manager can use the machine which is usually used to scan the different games in the sale, says BFM TV.
A detail has its importance : the amount due must not exceed 300 euros. According to the law, the online payment is mandatory when the amount is higher than 300 euros. However, if it enters into the nail, the taxpayer may pay the amount of tax on the income or property of its estate tax. The payment will be as well plotted and transmitted directly to the financial administration.
