I bought a French property in 2021 that I want to rent out, but it will not be completed until 2023. Do I need to complete an income tax return?

Yes, you will need to complete an income tax return. This is because when you rent a property in France, you can deduct the expenses incurred for this property. If your property to be completed in 2021 is intended to be rented out, you must complete a 2019 income tax return, even if your property has not yet been put into use, so that when you rent it out later, you will have the benefit of deducting expenses incurred in 2019 for the property, such as loan interests, land tax, work...
