Property value and appraisal report

The municipality establishes the property value (WOZ-waarde) for your residential property or business premises every year. This property value is used as the basis for various taxes. The value is stated on the assessment for municipal taxes which the municipality sends you each year.

What it it?

The property value (WOZ-waarde) is the estimated amount that your residential property or business premises would get on a fixed date: the valuation reference date. For the 2022 tax year the valuation reference date is 1 January 2021. The municipality uses the property value to calculate the property tax (OZB). Other agencies which use the property value are:

  • the Tax and Customs Administration (Belastingdienst)
  • the water board
  • mortgage lenders
  • landlords

      How does the municipality determine the property value?

      To determine the property value the municipality looks at:

      • the selling prices around the valuation reference date
      • the rental prices (for commercial properties)
      • the features of your residential property or business property. Such as:

        • neighbourhood
        • surface area
        • state of repair (condition)

      In order to calculate property values correctly, the municipality researches the market. This is called permanent market analysis.

      Complete the questionnaire

      As part of the analysis new owners and tenants get a questionnaire (PMA form). The questions are about the condition. And about the use of the recently sold residential property or business premises.

      Did you receive the form? Then you can also fill it in it online with your DigiD:

      Look at the appraisal report

      The appraisal report shows how the property value was determined. For example, the date of construction, the surface area and the type of property. The report also contains the selling prices and the property values for 3 other properties. This is how the municipality compares your property to other homes on the market. The properties do not need to be exactly the same. The municipality takes the differences in account in the appraisal.
