Impoundment notice

An impoundment notice informs you that a tax bailiff has been ordered to seize your motor vehicle, bank balance, wages and/or personal effects or property.

When do I get an impoundment notice?

You can get an impoundment notice if you have not paid your municipal taxes/fees (in full) in spite of a liability order.


You must pay the municipal taxes/fees immediately. The fastest way to pay is with online banking or by making a rush order through your bank. It is not possible to pay the outstanding amount in cash at the municipal counter.

Preventing or cancelling an impoundment

Please note: In this phase the tax bailiff will make a seizure unless he hears in time that you have made the payment (in full). If the bailiff makes a seizure, this seizure will be cancelled if you can prove that you have paid the back taxes, including all fees and interest.
