How to Do Your Tax Return in The Netherlands.

 

Do you already know about the tax return in The Netherlands or Belastingdienst? This system will help you get a considerable amount of taxes on your Dutch bank account and it takes only 10 minutes!

Tax forms may seem not fun at all and mostly when they are in Dutch! So, paying an accountant to do this process for you may sound very tempting (it will cost you around 30 euros). However, once you know what to do and where to go, it is very easy to do it online. And, guess what? We are here to guide you through the process!

As internationals, sometimes we spend too much time figuring these things out. But don´t worry about it! In this article, we offer you a guide to doing the tax return or ´belastingdienst´ in The Netherlands.

1. Create and account in ´Mijn Belastingdienst´.

Both app and website are very intuitive. Therefore, you will know what you need to write in each step. But don´t forget that writing the right information is key. Otherwise,  the process will take longer and we do not want that! So, it may be a good idea to keep your payslips nearby.

After filling in your details, your taxes will be directly calculated, as well as an estimated payment date. In addition, this information will be also sent to you by email.
