I wonder whether French Form 5000 (mirror 1, mirror 2) a.k.a. CERFA 5000 and French Form 5002 (mirror) a.k.a. CERFA 5002 need to be original when sent to the French tax authorities (a.k.a. the Fisc), or whether they can be copies/scans. I went through the Form 5000 instructions (mirror) but couldn't see the information. I'd like my US financial institution to seal it in the US, and scanning would save time+money.
I file my French tax forms online. Forms 5000 and 5002 are however sent by my French financial institution: I wonder whether French tax authorities require my French financial institution Forms 5000 and 5002 to be original paper versions.
