The RBG imposes over 99% of the tax bill in the course of the tax year. Some tax bills are sent at a later stage. We cannot send the tax bill until we have full information. We also check if we have sent all tax bills. Sometimes we see in such a check that we have to send an additional tax bill. It is unfortunate that you are confronted with this bill in arrears. However, the costs were incurred. The legislation offers the option of imposing the tax bill retro-actively. Do you want to pay your tax bill in instalments? Check the payment page read more about it here.
Owners The primary owner in the Land Registry Office’s system. If the same person also lives in the same home, the resident tax is also sent to this person. The
municipal authorities determine the exact name stated on the tax bill. If the
name is not correct, you can ask the municipal authorities to correct the name.
Heirs: After a person’s death, his/her heirs are responsible for payment of the tax bill. The RBG adds ‘heirs’ to the person’s name on the tax bill. If the name is changed in the Land Registry Office system, the RBG can change the name on the tax bill. This is an automatic process.
Divorce: If the home was allocated to your ex partner in a divorce, please notify the Land Registry Office accordingly. This is the only way to ensure that the RBG can change the name on the next tax bill. This is an automatic process. We receive the changed details from the Land Registry Office.
Also owner: The person that is listed as the primary owner in the Land Registry Office’s system.
Resident only (lessee): The person who received the tax bill in the previous year
No tax bill in the previous year: The person registered longest at the address in the municipal database. The person receiving the tax bill for municipal sufferance tax or municipal fees is registered for these taxes. There are some exceptions to these rules. These are available from the implementation rules for determining the person liable for paying taxes.
This depends on your personal circumstances. Living alone or not, home owner or not, value of the home, relocated or not. Different rules apply for each tax type. On the page calculate tax bill you can calculate your own tax bill. In the section information for each tax type, you can see the calculation of the different taxes.

The RBG aims to send 1 comprehensive tax bill per address. In some cases, these details are not yet linked. Sometimes one person receives the property owner tax and the other person receives the resident tax. Do you want to receive a comprehensive tax bill next year? Please notify us accordingly using the contact form. Please enter ‘the tax bill is addressed to the wrong name’ as the subject. Then choose ‘Other reason’. We will then address the tax bill to the person listed as the primary owner in the Land Registry Office’s system.
Please return the tax bill. Write ‘return to sender / onbestelbaar retour’ on the envelope. Postage is not necessary. On the envelope, state the name of the new owner / user and the effective date. Do you know the new address of the previous user/owner? Please also write this on the envelope.

Unfortunately, this is not possible. We will address the tax bill to the person listed as the primary owner in the Land Registry Office’s system as at 1 January. This could be the owner, lease holder or usufructuary. The municipal authorities determine the exact name stated on the tax bill. If the name is not correct, you can ask the municipal authorities to correct the name.
