Once you have settled in the Netherlands, you will be charged for several municipal taxes and levies. Some of them should be paid by your landlord and others by you. Below you find a summary which you will receive an invoice for:

  • Waste collection levy;
    Used for the collection, processing, and disposal of household waste.
  • Sewage levy;
    Used for the connection to the sewage network.
  • Water taxes (water board tax, pollution levy);
    contributes to the maintenance of the water systems and the purification process for wastewater.

The amounts charged will be based on the number of the household. Other taxes should be paid by the landlord. Therefore, The Relocation Company advises you to always consulate with the landlord who is responsible for paying municipal tax.
