Municipality of De Wolden: Paying property tax (OZB) on a property

Please note: do you own a (holiday) house or appartment in the Netherlands? If so, you must pay property tax (OZB). You do not have to be registered in a municipality for this.

The amount of your OZB depends on the value of your home, business premises or land (WOZ value). You can find the WOZ value on your municipal tax assessment notice and in the appraisal report.

The municipality determines the value of your home or business premises on the first of January each year. This is the valuation of immovable property (WOZ). The municipality uses the WOZ value of the previous year to determine the amount of property tax. Are you renovating your property after the value reference date? Then this is included in the determination of the WOZ value.
