How is the amount for the road levy for property owners determined?
The road levy for owners of real estate – such as residences or business premises – is a fixed percentage of the property’s WOZ value. The WOZ value is the value of your property as determined by the municipality.
Uncultivated and arable land and nature sites
The road levy for property owners of nature sites and other uncultivated and arable land is calculated by multiplying the rate per hectare by the number of hectares. The surface area dimensions as registered in the Land registry (kadaster) will be assumed.
If you sell your property later on in the year (after 1 January), you still have to pay for the whole year. The amount of this tax is typically charged to the new owner of the property by the notary upon sale, but this is not a legal obligation and must be negotiated between the buyer and seller.
