Bus/Financial - Law: Taxation & Customs / Income tax statement
French term or phrase: Retenu
On the income tax statement there are 3 columns

Déclaré Retenu Réduction

For instance under "Reductions D'impots" there appears the line item "Dons aux oeuvres" (charitable donations) with figures of 300, 300, 198 in the three columns.

In this sense is "Retenu" = withheld? or could it mean "allowable (amount)"
