Before you send your return

Before you send your return to us, there are a number of matters you should consider.

Do not send any enclosures

We process your tax return electronically, so do not send any enclosures with your return, unless the return explicitly states that you should. If you are using a printed return form, do not attach the pages of the return to each other or to the front page.

If you also send a personal income statement, you should use a separate envelope for this.

Submitting or changing a foreign account number

If you receive a refund, we will transfer this amount to the account number stated in the ‘invitation to file a tax return’. If the account number is incorrect or missing, you should send us a letter.

Change of name and address data

We use the name and address details that were last known to us for correspondence with you. You should therefore pass on your changes of address using the form Submitting a change of address.

Did you move to the Netherlands in the tax return year? If so we will receive your address details from your municipal authority.

If your 2019 income will significantly differ from your 2018 income

If you expect your 2019 income to significantly differ from your 2018 income, you can request us in writing to take that into account in the provisional assessment for 2019. Please send the letter separately to the tax office that is competent to handle your case.


We register the data that you fill in on the tax return form. We treat your data with care and will never disclose them to third parties without good reason. However, we are required to exchange data with certain other public authorities and similar agencies.
