Place of residence

The country in which you have to pay taxes depends on your place of residence. The question of where you live is often easy to answer. If you go on a holiday to another country for example, you are not living in that other country, of course.

If, for example, you go from Belgium to the Netherlands with all your household effects, you are going to live there. There are situations that are less easy to assess:

  • You are going to live in another country temporarily.
  • You move back to your original country of residence within a year.
  • You are transferred abroad by your employer.
  • You are transferred abroad by the government.

If you have any doubts about where you are living, please contact the Tax Information Line for Non-resident Tax Issues.
