Filing tax returns late
What if you're late filing your tax return?
No fine will be issued to you initially. You will first receive a reminder from the Dutch Tax Office asking you to still file a tax return. After that, you have to file your tax return within the deadline mentioned in the reminder letter. From this point on, you can no longer request a postponement without a written reason, in addition, the tax authorities may reject a request for postponement next year.
No tax return after the reminder
No tax return at all
