Dear Gene,

Thank you for your message in regards to the tax refund process at Galeries Lafyatte.

Have you already left paris or are you at the airport currently? The Airport will have envelopes available for you if you lost yours. If you are already back in your home country and you haven’t submitted your tax refund back yet, please follow these steps:

Within 6 months after the date of purchase of your goods, you must address a tax refund request to:

Direction Générale des Douanes et Droits Indirects
Fiscalité, transports et politiques fiscales communautaires (bureau F1)
11, rue des Deux Communes
93558 Montreuil
France

This request MUST be supported by the following documents:

A copy of your passport;
A copy of your travel ticket or your boarding pass;
An “attestation de présentation des marchandises” issued by a French Consulate. In order to get this document you must go to the Consulate with the goods you bought, your passport and your plane ticket – OR –
The Declaration you made for those goods when entering your country;
A letter with exhaustive explanations of the reasons why you were not able to get your form stamped when leaving France;
The Retail Export Form.

I hope that answers your question regarding the tax refund process in Paris.

Kind Regards,
Diane

Dear Regina,

Thank you for your message about the tax refund process in Paris.

If you are looking for something specific I would recommend shopping in the store in the city. I only say this because the airport stores have a very limited quantity of what they have in the store. I haven’t been to the LV store at the airport before, but I have been to other higher end designer stores at the airport and they are small boutiques. The flagship store or another store in the city will most likely have what you’re looking for.

You are correct – The airport pricing will already have the tax deducted from the price, meaning you wouldn’t have to process the VAT refund at the airport.

I hope that answers your question about the tax refund process in Paris.

Kind Regards,

Dear Michelle,

I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble with the tax refund process in Paris from Galeries Lafayette. The reason you are being charged is because somewhere in the process something wasn’t done correctly.

Did you follow all the steps in the article and then drop the envelop in the mailbox at the airport?

I recommend you contact Galeries Lafayette after you identify where in the tax refund process there was an error. That way when you talk to them you can describe in detail exactly what happened.

Once again I’m sorry to hear you’re having issues with the tax refund process, it can be complicated sometimes.

I hope that answers your question regarding the tax refund process in Paris from Galeries Lafayette.

Kind Regards,
Diane
