The increases in residential taxes in the large municipalities is very limited this year. Tenants will pay 0.3 percent more, owner-occupiers 0.6 percent. That is much lower than inflation, which is expected to be 1.6 percent in 2018. This is apparent from the report ‘Key Items Relating to Taxes in Large Municipalities 2018 [Kerngegevens belastingen grote gemeenten 2018]’, written by the University of Groningen’s Centre for Research on Local Government Economics [Centrum voor Onderzoek van de Economie van de Lagere Overheden (COELO)].

For its annual review, COELO looked at the tax rates in 38 large municipalities, where 40 percent of the Dutch population lives. The entire report (in Dutch), including figures for each separate large municipality, can be viewed at You can also read the extensive Dutch press release.
