Increasing taxation on (rental) property in box 3

As previously communicated, from 2023 onwards the correction that was possible based on the rented status of a second property will be limited. Whereas until 2022, depending on the level of rent, the value could be reduced to maximally 45% of the WOZ-value, from 2023 onwards this will be a minimum of 73%. If you would like to know how this will work out in your situation, please contact our office.

These adjustments, together with the higher box 3 levy for real estate, mean that a house in box 3, whether rented out or not, will be taxed more heavily from 2023 onwards. It may therefore be advisable to request a higher provisional assessment. Do you have any questions about this? Contact our office and we will be happy to look at the options with you.

Also, it is proposed that the Box 3 tax will be adjusted again in 2027, based more on actual return on investment instead of fictitious return on your assets.


As an expat and business owner, my income taxes can get pretty complicated. But thanks to the folks at J.C. Suurmond & zn., I don’t have to worry about getting things wrong or forgetting obscure tax rules. It’s great to feel like I have someone on my side dealing with the Dutch tax authorities. They’ve handled my taxes for years, and I hope they will for years to come. Thanks 🙏🏼”
