Missed the tax filing deadline!

Did you miss the tax filing deadline and are you wondering if you can still file your Dutch personal income tax return. Yes, this is still possible. The May 1 or July 1 deadline only applies if you were invited to file by the Dutch Tax Authorities. No invitation received, no tax filing deadline!

However, you may face an interest penalty if you owe money to the Dutch Tax Authorities and you file after May 1.

Are you expecting a refund of taxes, do not wait too long to file your tax return. Filing is still possible up to 5 years after the end of the tax year.

When to expect a refund of taxes (in most cases)?

  • if you arrived in the Netherlands sometime during the year
  • if you left the Netherlands sometime during the year
  • if you have been living in the Netherlands for the entire year and you started working sometime during the year
  • if you are a non-resident taxpayer of the Netherlands working for a Dutch employer in the Netherlands and you have working days outside the Netherlands
  • if you have a principal residence in the Netherlands financed witha mortgage loan on which you pay interest
  • if you have qualifying educational expenses that can be claimed as a personal deduction
  • if you have a non-working partner and you have been living in the Netherlands for more than six months during the year
