Dutch tax credits



Depending on your specific situation, you may receive a general tax credit, employment tax credit, child tax credit, single senior citizen tax credit and/or a few others.

General tax credit

Anyone who lives in the Netherlands and is liable to tax in that country is entitled to the general tax credit. The general tax credit is EUR 2,001. Whether the general tax credit can be paid out fully depends on your personal situation. If you had little or no income and you had a fiscal partner with sufficient income during at least 6 months of the fiscal year, the general tax credit can be paid out to you by the Dutch tax authority (Belastingdienst).

If you are over 65 years old, the amount of the general tax credit is lower, namely EUR 1,034.
