I do not live in the Netherlands - can I still apply for a provisional assessment?

Yes, you can, but maybe not for all tax allowances and tax credits.

What you qualify for depends on your personal situation, such as:

  • the country you live in
  • whether you are compulsory covered for national insurance schemes in the Netherlands, such as the old-age pension
  • being a non-resident taxpayer or a qualifying non-resident taxpayer

Please note!

Non-resident taxpayers cannot electronically apply for a provisional assessment.

Non-resident taxpayer or qualifying non-resident taxpayer?

If you do not live in the Netherlands, but you do have an income from the Netherlands, we consider you a non-resident taxpayer. With income we mean earnings from work and property (box 1), substantial interest (box 2) or savings and investments (box 3).

If you live in an EU country or in Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, on Bonaire, Sint-Eustatius or Saba, and you pay tax in the Netherlands on at least 90% of your total earnings, we consider you a qualifying non-resident tax payer.
