Filing your tax return in the Netherlands: gain maximum tax benefit

Of course you don’t want to miss out on any tax benefits in the Netherlands that you are entitled to. In that case you need to file a tax return and make sure this is done correctly. You can file a tax return for 2018 and previous years, will five years back.

Even if you have not received an invitation to submit a tax return in the Netherlands, it is important to have your tax situation checked by a specialized expat tax advisor. This way you won’t miss any tax refund opportunities while filing your Dutch tax return. If you have your tax return automatically done by your employer in the Netherlands or a firm hired by them you can also come to us for a second opinion. If you have never filed a tax return this can be done retrospectively from 2014.

Tax return Netherlands: which deductions

J.C. Suurmond & zn. Tax consultants are experts in expat tax matters and will make sure the optimum tax status is applied for. We will check whether all tax deductions, credits and allowances, applicable to your situation, are made use of. Regular Dutch tax return deductions are for example:

  • mortgage interest deduction
  • educational costs (also of your children or partner),
  • charitable giving
  • alimony
  • non-compensated health costs

In a proactive way you will be advised of your personal tax saving possibilities, which will be processed in the income tax return. As we provide a complete tax return service, we will also check the tax assessments that follow and appeal if needed to make sure your tax affairs are settled correctly.

Tax return Netherlands: which tax forms

The regular tax form is a P-form. In immigration or emigration situations however, an  extensive M-form has to be submitted. This is a more extensive Dutch tax return form and has to be submitted on paper. In a situation where you only lived in the Netherlands very short or merely worked in the Netherlands, a C-form for non-domestic taxation may apply.
The M-form and C-form often give opportunity for refunds. With help of our direct line to the inspectors at the tax inspectorate for expats in Heerlen, we can check what Dutch tax return needs to be submitted in your situation.
We also take care of other tax forms, for example the request for a provisional refund for mortgage relief, which results in a monthly refund instead of a lump sum after the end of the year.
