Send a personal income statement with your tax return
If you meet the conditions, you can claim Dutch tax benefits outside the Netherlands. You must send a personal income statement to the Tax and Customs Administration in the Netherlands when you file your tax return.
First check whether you meet the conditions to claim Dutch tax benefits outside the Netherlands.
If you meet the conditions and want to claim Dutch tax benefits, you must send a personal income statement to the Tax and Customs Administration. You are advised to send the personal income statement at the same time as your tax return. If you cannot, file your tax return first so that you do not have to request an extension for it and send your personal income statement after you have filed your tax return.
If you have a tax partner (information in Dutch) and either you or your tax partner is not a qualifying non-resident taxpayer, only the qualifying non-resident taxpayer has to submit a personal income statement for the year in question.
No personal income statement?
If you do not send a personal income statement, your tax assessment will not include the same tax benefits as a Dutch resident’s assessment. You will then probably pay more tax or be refunded less.
Download and submit a personal income statement
Separate personal income statements are available for each tax year. Personal income statements and explanatory notes in all EU languages, Norwegian and Icelandic are available on the Tax and Customs Administration’s website. The website also explains the conditions your personal income statement must meet and how you should submit it.
The statement will first need to be stamped and signed by the tax authorities in your country of residence. Sometimes this can take a while. So you should try to get this done as early as possible.
