Box 1 Income Tax

Box 1: income from work and residential home ownership

The most important box for most Dutch tax residents is box 1. A progressive tax rate system comprised of several brackets determines how much tax you will pay. The tax rates (2020) vary from 37.35% to 49.5% for people below pensionable age. Expenditure or personal allowances can be deducted from income to reduce the amount of tax due. For more information, see the income tax section in our Frequently Asked pages.
