As a result, many American expatriates living in France have to file two tax returns and threaten them with double taxation. In Article 24, the treaty also provides for the exemption of double taxation for Americans living in France and French citizens living in the United States, but instead of simply exempting American expatriates living in France from U.S. tax, the treaty allows them to claim U.S. tax credits of the same value as the French income taxes they paid when they file their tax returns.
