Municipality checking dog tax

Published: 26 September 2017Modified: 6 October 2017

Over the coming weeks the municipality will be checking whether dog owners have paid their dog tax. This year the company Legitiem will conduct the inspections on behalf of the municipality.

Alle controleurs van Legitiem kunnen zich bij de huis-aan-huis controle legitimeren met een legitimatiepas van de gemeente.

All of the Legitiem inspectors will be able to identify themselves using an identity card from the municipality during the door-to-door checks.

Register for the tax

You are obliged to register for the dog tax on time if you have 1 or more dogs. If you have more than 1 dog but you are not yet paying for all of the dogs, you still have to make a declaration. If the door-to-door checks reveal that 1 or more dogs have not get been reported, you will get a tax bill sent to your home. Did you get a dog? Then you have to register it within 6 weeks.

  • If you do not abide by the rules for the dog tax, then you risk getting a fine. Look for more information under Dog tax.
  • More information about the municipal policy can be found under Municipal tax penalties.
