Income tax in 3 boxes
Dutch income tax is calculated on the basis of three different sources of income: work, business ownership and wealth. The tax rate depends on the amount of income and the income source. Permanent residents pay tax on their worldwide income. Non-residents pay tax only on income sourced in the Netherlands.
Income is sorted into three categories, known as boxes:
- Box 1: income from work and home ownership
- Box 2: income from a financial interest in a company
- Box 3: income from assets (savings and investment)
