Capital gains tax netherlands 

Perhaps you have just sold your home in the Netherlands or you intend to. Then we have some good news for you, there is no capital gains tax for individuals in the Netherlands. Instead of capital gains tax, you will pay box 3 taxes. This is a tax on fictitious income from savings and investments, based on the value of January 1st of each year. We will be glad to look into the possibilities to reduce this tax as much as possible, for example via the 30% ruling, or investments abroad.
