It is now time to fill in your Tax form for the last year. In the Netherlands, you are required to do so before 1st of April. You might find it difficult though to understand how it works! P-NUT invites you to the annual Tax Lunch meeting, where you will be informed about the basics of the Dutch tax system.
A tax accountant from Ten Donkelaar will come to visit us and explain the Dutch income tax system in about 30 minutes. After that there will be time for both general and individual questions. For those who want professional help with filling in their forms, It is possible to make a personal appointment with Ten Donkelaar. A sandwich lunch will be provided.
