My wife and I intend to retire and move from the US to Bretagne in the fall. We own a home in Pont Augan, Morbihan which we bought for this purpose.
We are having difficulty figuring out what our tax liabilities will be; e.g. what constitutes taxable income at what rates. Is it possible to direct me to an accountant who could answer our questions via email? We’re quite willing to pay for the service. Bilingual is preferred but we can do it in French in the unlikely event we can figure out the French equivalents for capital gains, annuities, 401/403 accounts, etc. There are plenty of British people where we are located who have tried to help us but our situation seems quite different, perhaps because we are not from an EU country.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Saw your message Americans in France - I am not able to answer any of your questions at this time, but as I gain information will do so. I am planning to move to France this year; have consired Brittany and Normandy - I am English, (living in California) dual citizenship (EU)
I am interested that you have chosen that part of France. I am familiary with the Dorgone area and visited briefly Provence, which I found rather too dry and the Dordogne a little remote. I hope to find a property with income potential.
Good luck! Hope we can correspond.
