Municipal taxes

Once a year you receive the municipal tax bill by post or digitally in the Berichtenbox on MijnOverheid.nl. Tax money allows the municipality to maintain and expand all kinds of facilities, such as streets, sewers and public lighting. 

Paying municipal taxes

Reduction of taxes (vermindering)

In these situations, you can ask for a reduction of taxes:

If you sell your house, the property tax and sewer tax (owner part) will be settled with the new owner at the notary's office. You will therefore not receive it back via the municipality.

Make an objection (bezwaar)

Do you disagree with the amount of your WOZ-value? Or is the tax bill incorrect? Filing an objection can be done within 5 minutes. Use the (Dutch) online object form or send your objection by e-mail or postal letter. Please include at least your name, address, date of the objection, claim number, the reason for your objection and your signature.

Asking for a waiver (kwijtschelding)

Are you unable to pay the tax bill? Then ask for a waiver. This is possible for people with a low income. For example a social assistance benefit, a low salary or a small pension. You can apply for a waiver (Dutch) directly online using DigiD. Or call 14 013 for the application form. Until a decision is made, you do not have to pay the tax bill.
