Take a detailed inventory of your items and a certificate of change of residence for transit in customs purposes. In order to profit from tax exemption for the importation from personal belongings, two conditions are simultaneously necessary:

  1. residence abroad for more than 12 months
  2. use of the goods on a purely basis deprived since at least 6 months before the transfer of residence.

The Customs will give you a specimen concerned of the inventory, a certificate 846 A for the registration of your vehicle, as well as a chart of freedom of movement established on your request (which makes it possible to justify during ten years of the regular situation of the held objects). The American tax authorities will be able to require with your departure a tax final discharge or form of situation.

If you have children, you will have to think of the school inscriptions. For primary education teaching you must address yourselves to the town hall of the commune or you will reside. For secondary education, it is recommended, before your return, to contact the chief of the academic service of information and orientation (SAIO) of the academy of the city in which you will reside.
