An expat’s guide to safely filing the 2019 Dutch Income Tax returns

The tax return deadline is around the corner, and that means it is also the right time to brush up on your knowledge related to the changes introduced this year in the tax code. The timeframe for submitting income tax returns in the Netherlands depends on your situation.

In many cases resident taxpayers need to file their returns by 30 April 2019, while the non-resident taxpayers must generally submit by 1 July 2019. In either instance, tax filers are often able to request an extension with no difficulty

If you are a new migrant, or if you left the country recently, you may also be required to submit an M Form (which needs to be filed for the year in which you arrive or depart from the Netherlands) by 1 July 2019. While the tax return can be filed online, the M form must be filed on paper.

As important it is to file your income tax returns on time, it is equally important to file them securely. After all, tax returns are prime grounds for thieves and swindlers alike to steal your personal information.
