What is the “loonheffingskorting” (taxes reduce) and where can I adjust this?

Modified on Wed, 20 Mar at 3:15 PM

“Loonheffingskorting” is a tax that you have to pay on your wages. This levy must be paid to the tax authorities. 


Every working Dutch citizen is entitled to wage tax credit. This tax credit is deductible from your tax. This means you pay less tax on your wages. 


You can apply for the taxes discount only at one job at the same time. So if you have more jobs, than you should apply for the taxes discount with the job were you get paid more salary.
