Homeowners will again pay more in 2017 for the property tax (OZB). However, the increase of the tax remains for the first time in five years under the agreed maximum increase.
That concludes the Vereniging Eigen Huis (VEH) after a sample survey among 109 of the 390 municipalities.
The property tax, to be paid by each homeowner, will increase on average next year by 1.3 percent. This is considerably less than the agreed maximum of nearly 2 percent.
However, there are still major differences between the various municipalities. In 32 of the surveyed municipalities, the tax on home ownership increased at least 2 percent, while residents of 29 municipalities will benefit a reduction in property tax.
Biggest climber in the survey, the municipality of Haren, where the average property tax-assessment increases by 12 percent to 423 euros. Nationally, homeowners on are facing a tax of average 276 euros next year.
