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 Veendam.

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

Property tax (ozb) is a municipal tax. The owner of a house, a piece of land, a garage box or business premises must pay this tax. The tenant of a commercial building or the user of the land also pays ozb.

The amount depends on the WOZ value of your property on January 1. We use the WOZ value to determine how much your house or building is worth. Then we calculate the ozb over that amount. You will then receive a letter from us, a tax assessment. This states how much you must pay.

Are you moving or selling your building or land? You pay the ozone tax for the whole year. We look at who is the owner or tenant on January 1. So you only pay ozone tax for your new property from January 1. Often the ozone tax is settled with the new owner at the notary.
