Income tax rates in the Netherlands

The tables below shows how much tax you owe in the Netherlands for different types of income. The Dutch tax office divides income into three sources, known as boxes; box 1, 2 and 3. Each box has its own set of tax rates, defining how much tax you pay for this income source. 

  • Box 1 shows the amount of tax you owe on income from employment (including a home that you live in and own).  
  • Box 2 shows the amount of tax you owe on income from business ownership. 
  • Box 3 shows how much tax you owe on your assets (such as cash, bank deposits, real estate and investments). 
  • For each box a different set of taxation rules applies, and the taxable amounts are expressed as percentages (tax rates).  

Tax rates are set annually by the Dutch government. The rates for box 1, box 2 and box 3 can be found below.  As of 1 January 2020, the Dutch tax office has two (instead of four) tax brackets for box 1.
