The average WOZ tax base of homes increased

The average WOZ tax base of homes has increased across the country this year. That’s because last year’s property sales figures are used to determine this year’s tax base. As at 1 January 2022, most homes were worth more than they are today. This was reflected in the high sales figures.

How does the RBG determine the WOZ tax base?

We compare your home with other homes that sold about a year earlier. Of course, we take into account the differences between properties. For example:

  • The size of the property
  • The total plot size
  • The state of maintenance
  • Differences in components or outbuildings (such as a dormer window, additional gazebo or canopy)
  • the type of amenities (such as bathroom and kitchen)

The WOZ page has more information on how we determine the WOZ tax base.

What homes was your home compared to and what else was included in the appraisal?

That’s all in your appraisal report. When you log in at My RBG, you will see your appraisal report. This shows the features we have taken into account. And also which homes we compared your home to.

What is the decrease in your tax assessment if your WOZ tax base falls?

You can calculate this yourself under calculate assessment. Enter a lower WOZ tax base here. You can see right away how much this will save you in property taxes and Water Board taxes.
