Income Tax 2021
Most residents of the Netherlands have to file an annual income tax and national insurance contributions return. In short IB/PVV. If you do not request a postponement in time, you must submit the income tax return before May 2022.
Scholtz Administrations provides tailor-made declaration assistance. You can opt for a personal appointment on location, or for the use of video calling. We prefer to meet face to face, but it is understandable if you prefer not to.
Don't pay too much Tax, avoid loosing entitlements. If you did not receive an invitation from the tax authorities to file an income tax return, there is a good chance that you will be able to get a refund. The tax authorities are not always aware of possible deductibles or changes in personal circumstances. This may also mean that you are obliged to file a tax return, but that the tax authorities are not aware of this.
In most cases, declaration assistance from Scholtz Administrations does not cost more than EUR 75 including VAT for people with employment or benefit. This includes a short telephone preliminary interview, check on the necessary documents and evidence, including an appointment at which the 2021 income tax return will be submitted.
Expats and other newcomers often have questions about the Dutch tax system. Ask these questions during the appointment. General questions can usually be answered immediately. More personal requests for advice may require time and research. You understand that an agreement will be made about the reasonable additional costs.
The advice is always: Do not forget the tax return in the country of birth!
Assessment Income Tax 2021
If you have filed an income tax return or had it done, you will receive an income tax assessment from the tax authorities. The assessment states what you must pay or get back in income tax. If the tax authorities deviates from the return, you can lodge an objection within 6 weeks.
Provisional Income Tax Assessment 2022
You may have already received a provisional income tax assessment 2022, or you may already know that you must pay or receive income tax for the year 2022. Certainly to prevent you from accruing a 'hidden' debt, it is wise to properly estimate your rights and obligations for the year 2022, and possibly apply for a Provisional Income Tax Assessment 2022. This way you avoid saving with the tax authorities or an unpleasant surprise in the new year.
Checking Supplements, A Good Idea
For the time being we are stuck with the Dutch "Toeslagen" system. If you receive Childcare Allowance, Housing Allowance or Healthcare Allowance from the government, you must constantly check whether you are not receiving too much (or too little). You must also report changes in personal circumstances. This way you prevent the 'hidden' debts that everyone is so afraid of, as well as fines. It is good practice to check the amount of the entitlement to Toeslagen when filing an Income Tax return.
