C Form 2014-2017
If you have received an invitation to file a tax return and you do not wish to make use of the tax return program for non-resident taxpayers, you can make use of the C Form.
Even if you did not receive a tax return letter, but do believe that you are entitled to a tax refund, or if you have to pay tax, you can make use of the C form.
When should you use a C Form?
You should use a C Form if you do not file your tax return in digital form and if one or more of the following situations applied to you in the tax return year:
- You lived outside the Netherlands throughout the tax return year (this does not apply to government employees stationed abroad).
- You were liable to pay tax and/or national insurance contributions in the Netherlands in the tax return year.
- You lived abroad throughout the tax return year and you have a business in the Netherlands.
Applying for a C form
The C form for the year for which you want to file a tax return can be requested by telephone from the Tax Information Line Non-Resident Tax Issues. Have your citizen service number (BSN) ready.
