Josette Pons (born December 12, 1947) is a member of the National Assembly of France. She represents the Var department,[1] and is a member of the Union for a Popular Movement.

She was elected deputy on June 16, 2002 of the 12th Legislature of the Fifth French Republic (2002–2007). The legislative elections of June 10, 2007 and June 17, 2012 renewed her appointment.

In November 2016 French fiscal regulators responsible for combatting elected official corruption found her guilty of underestimating her wealth and income by over 2 million euros in her 2014 tax returns. As a result, she was fined 45,000 euros and was heavily criticized in French media.[2][3][4]
