Households that own their own homes will on average pay 0.8% more in municipal, provincial and water board taxes. The increase is significantly less than the inflation. Municipal taxes are set to rise by 0.7% on average, the water rates by 1.7% and the provincial taxes will remain the same. This is revealed by the Atlas van de Lokale Lasten [Atlas of Local Levies] presented by the Centre for Research on Local Government Economics [Centrum voor Onderzoek van de Economie van de Lagere Overheden (COELO) today. COELO is a University of Groningen research institute.
Owner-occupied multi-person households pay on average € 1,312: € 721 to the municipality, € 259 to the province and € 332 to the water board. Bloemendaal is the most expensive place to live (€ 1,900); Veenendaal is the cheapest (€ 1,039).
