When do i file my Dutch personal income tax return?
For income tax, the fiscal year runs from the first of January to the 31st of december. The Dutch tax authorities provide a time frame in which the income tax return can be submitted. Mostly this is from the first of march until the 30st of april of the following year. For example; the income tax return of 2018 had to be submitted before the 30st of april 2019. Further extension is possible, however the request must be submitted before the deadline.
In The Netherlands different kind of forms are available, depending on the taxpayer’s situation. The most common forms are:
P-form: This form is applicable for people in a regular employment situations and have their residence in The Netherlands;
M-form: This form is applicable for people who resided in The Netherlands for only a part of the fiscal year;
C-form: this form is applicable for people who don't reside in The Netherlands, but do earn income from The Netherlands;
W-form: this form is applicable for people who are self-employed.
At first you will receive a preliminary assessment from the Dutch tax authorities, which is based on the filed tax return. this preliminary assessment has not been checked by the Dutch tax authorities yet. After they have checked the return, a final assessment will follow. In both of these assessment the payment details are stated.
