Wondering if you are eligible for a tax refund in the Netherlands? Generally, in case you worked for the same employer during the entire year and you cannot claim any personal deductions, there is no refund of taxes to be expected on your personal income tax return.
When to expect a tax refund on your Dutch personal income tax return
Situations (among others) in which you may expect a refund:
- You have not worked in the Netherlands for the entire year, either due to migration or if you started a job during the year
- You benefit the 30% ruling and you are a US national or a US green card holder
- You are a non-resident taxpayer of the Netherlands and you had foreign workdays
- You are regarded as a fiscal partner without (hardly any) income, provided that your partner pays enough tax
- You have a child who is living with you and who is younger than 12 on 1 January provided that certain conditions are met
- You have a principal residence financed with a mortgage loan on which you pay mortgage interest
