Paying property tax (OZB) on a property

Do you own a (holiday) house or flat in the Netherlands? If so, you must pay property tax (onroerendezaakbelasting– OZB) on it every year. Property tax is part of the municipal taxes and is billed by your municipality. The municipality sets the amount. Tenants do not pay OZB.

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Landgraaf.

Municipality of Landgraaf: Paying property tax (OZB) on a property

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

BsGW performs this task on behalf of the municipality of Landgraaf.

How much OZB you have to pay depends on the:

  • value of the property;
  • the OZB percentages that apply in your municipality.

BsGW determines the value of your business premises each year on January 1. This is the property valuation (waardering onroerende zaken – WOZ). BsGW determines the OZB on the basis of the previous year’s WOZ and the OZB percentages.
