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 you get from the municipality each year.
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 2024 tax year the valuation reference date is 1 January 2023. 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
To determine the property value the municipality looks at:
- the selling prices around the valuation reference date
- the rental prices (for commercial properties)
the characteristics of your residential property or business property. Such as:
- surface area
- state of repair (condition), as far as known to the municipality
To calculate the property value correctly, the municipality does market research. This is called permanent market analysis.
The appraisal report shows how the property value was determined. For example, the year of construction, the surface area and the type of property. The report also contains the selling prices and the property values for at least 3 other properties. This is how the municipality compares your property to other homes on the market which were sold around the valuation reference date. The properties do not need to be exactly the same. The municipality takes the differences in account in the appraisal.

This is stipulated by law. The date the municipality uses to determine the property value (value reference date) must be a year earlier than the tax year. This way the municipality has enough time to collect all of the sales data and calculate the new property value.
