I live abroad all year round - how do I log in to file a tax return?

You can log in with your DigiD or a user name and password issued by the Tax and Customs Administration. If you live in another European country, you can, in some situations, also log in with a national login tool from that specific country.

DigiD gives you access to Mijn Belastingdienst. Via Mijn Belastingdienst, you can not only file your tax return, but also view returns and assessments and update your bank account number. DigiD gives you access to personal platforms of other Dutch governmental organisations as well. In some cases, you can also log in with a national login tool from another European country. With a user name and password issued by the Tax and Customs Administration, you can only file an income tax return.

You can no longer apply for a user name and password

As from 1 September 2022, you can no longer apply for a user name and password from the Tax and Customs Administration. If you have already received a user name and password from us, you can continue to use these until 1 July 2023. After that, you will only be able to log in with your DigiD or a national login tool of the European country you live in.

Do you receive a state pension while living abroad? In that case you can also apply for a DigiD at the Dutch Social Insurance Bank (SVB). This is easier than visiting a service desk, as the activation code will be sent to your home address.

Using a national login tool from another European country

If you live in another European country, you may be able to log in to the Tax and Customs Administration using a national login tool from that country. With an EU-approved login tool (eIDAS), European companies and citizens can conduct their business online with public authorities across national borders. Do you want to find out whether you can log in with a national login tool from your country of residence? Please visit the website of Netherlands Worldwide.
