Filing your 2021 tax return
Filing your taxes in a foreign language can be difficult. To file your taxes, you need a DigiD. If you do not have a DigiD, you need to apply for one. Keep in mind: this can take up to a few weeks!
Do you need assistance with the preparation and filing of your Dutch tax return for the year 2021 or for previous years? We are pleased to assist you. We have 20+ years of experience with filing tax returns for expats and with expat related tax issues. Our work is accurate and our fees are fixed. Only € 189 inclusive of 21% VAT for an individual income tax return and € 45 extra for fiscal partners. We use our own electronic signature for filing tax returns; your personal DigiD is not necessary.
Do you prefer to have your tax return prepared during an (e-)meeting. Book an appointment for a tax return meeting. Due to Covid-19 only e-meetings are accepted until further notice. We can prepare your tax return together making use of the tax return that is available on MijnBelastingdienst. This enables you to file your own tax return next year. A DigiD is required in this situation. Our fee for a tax return meeting is € 245 incl 21% VAT for an individual income tax return and € 35 extra for fiscal partners. The tax return meeting is only available for individuals with income from employment and not for self-employed individuals.
