You can look at your municipal tax bill on MijnDenHaag.

You will receive the municipal tax bill (woonlastennota) by post in February. Sometimes not all of the required information is available to determine the tax bill. In that case you will receive the bill later. It is possible that you receive several bills for different years at the same time. Look at the payment methods.
Did you not receive a municipal tax bill and do you think you should have gotten one? Then you can contact the Municipal Tax Department.

Online and/or by post

If you make use of the Berichtenbox (MijnOverheid) you can choose to receive the municipal tax bill only online. This is safe, easy and better for the environment. Also opt for paperless post on the Berichtenbox page in MijnDenHaag.

DigiD authorisation

In the Berichtenbox you can make use of the authorisation function in order to read other people's messages or to allow other people to read your messages. This is handy, for example, for people who need assistance with their taxes and for partners who arrange each other's affairs. More information can be found under DigiD Authorisation

Local tax calculator

You can easily calculate how much you would pay in local taxes in The Hague using the local tax calculator. You can then compare this to other Dutch municipalities and see how your tax assessment would be affected if there would be a change in your situation or if your home would have a higher or lower property value. Go to the local tax calculator.

Contesting municipal taxes

If you disagree with (1 of) the charges on your municipal tax bill, you can contest it. Depending on which charge it is, you can file an objection in the following cases:

  • You were not the owner of the property on 1 January.
  • You were not the user of the property on 1 January.
  • As the owner you disagree with the property value of your premises.
  • As the tenant you disagree with the property value of your home.
  • Incorrect rate for the waste tax.
  • Incorrect demarcation of property (if it was assumed to be 1 property while it should have been 2 different properties or vice versa).
