Tax returns

I would like to include assignments that were paid in 2017 as part of my income for 2016

Our salary administration for 2016 closes on January 5th of 2017. It is no longer possible for us to make any changes to it after this date.

If you contact the Tax and Customs Administration, they will say that it is still possible to make changes. However, we do not do this. The reason for this is that if there are changes then new information has to be sent to the Tax and Customs Administration for everyone included in our administration, which involves thousands of people. This is liable to lead to errors and therefore it's our choice not to progress with this.

We have drawn attention to the procedure for year-end tax returns on several occasions in the newsletters in order to give you time to organize matters properly in advance. 

What if I have more than 1 annual statement of income?

If you have worked via more than 1 subsidiary, you will receive more than 1 annual statement of earnings. The amounts do not need to be added together and can be filled in separately in your income tax return (aangifte Inkomstenbelasting).

Why is there no Health Insurance Act contribution (ingehouden bijdrage Zorgverzekeringswet) listed on my annual statement of income?

Under the performing artists' tax scheme in 2017, no income-related contributions are deducted from gross wages/fees. This means that, if a freelancer has worked as a performing artist, a premium of 5.4% of fees is due when completing the income tax return (aangifte Inkomstenbelasting) for 2017. This premium must then be paid to the tax service.

What is the salary for the purposes of the Health Insurance Act (Loon Zorgverzekeringswet)?

This is the total amount in respect of which Health Insurance Act (Zorgverzekeringswet) contributions are paid.

What is the Health Insurance Act premium (ingehouden bijdrage Zorgverzekeringswet)?

A premium of 6.65% of an employee's salary, up to a maximum annual salary of € 53,697 (2017), is compulsorily withheld for Health Insurance Act contributions (bijdrage Zorgverzekeringswet). The employer is required to reimburse these income-related contributions in full for all his workers. The employee is then liable for tax on this reimbursement. The employee transfers the contributions to the tax service direct.

What is the working person's tax credit (verrekende arbeidskorting)?

The working person's tax credit (arbeidskorting) is a reduction in income tax (loonheffing). The tax credit is calculated on the basis of the wages in current employment excluding extraordinary remuneration (for example, holiday pay) and for employees aged under the AOW age at the beginning of the calendar year it is restricted to a maximum of € 3,223 per year (2017). For employes with the AOW age and older, the maximum personal's tax credit is € 1,645.

What are income tax deductions (ingehouden loonheffing)?

Income tax and national insurance contributions are referred to collectively as income tax (loonheffing) because the party required to withhold them (in this case Tentoo), deducts them and transfers them to the Tax and Customs Administration as a single amount.

Where can I find the amounts in my annual statement of earnings on my last payslip for 2016?

Your wages for the purposes of income tax (loonbelasting) are listed with the cumulative amounts with the description "Loon loonheffing" and this amount is rounded down to the nearest Euro. The tax and national insurance contributions that have been deducted from your wages (ingehouden loonheffing) are also listed with the cumulative amounts with the description "loonheffing" and this amount is rounded up to the nearest Euro.
